In college I had a mentor who taught me many things I cannot put into words. But one of those things she put into words herself, and I have never forgotten them: “You can’t know something until you know it.”
By this I think she meant I should be patient with myself, and even with the person I used to be, taking into account that no one is born knowing everything. Wisdom comes from experience. We only get experience by living, so when we are young we sometimes do not yet know how to be wise. If you understand this, you can give yourself and others grace.
