W is for Wisdom
Since the majority of my posts in this challenge have been pretty light and fun, I think it's time to do a deeper, more philosophical post, even though I am no good at them! Well, here goes!
Wisdom is always a word I associate with smart people. I have always thought of wisdom to be purely based on one's mental capacity, and the fact that they are smarter than most people. However, when I looked it up, this is what I found:
This says that wisdom is not just based on brains- you must also be moral with good judgement, not just smart, in order to be wise.
Another thing that is often associated with wisdom is age, but I personally don't really think you have to be old to be wise. With that being said, I don't think a five year old would be considered very wise people. The definition above mentions experience. To have wisdom, one must experience a multitude of things prior to becoming wise. Emotions, thoughts, feelings and so on must be experienced by a person in order for them to have wisdom.
If you don't make mistakes, you don't become wiser. It's as simple as that.
And that is my attempt at a philosophical post! I hope to have enlightened you in some way :)
