Situations Reveal you

Situations, even the simulated games, reveal ourselves to us, and also aid us to arrive at ideas, answers, and insights we would not have likely arrived at without them. Hence, the fastest way to learn and evolve is to create them.

Life is a game. I created one within the other to deal with it.
