I keep getting hit with these “oh duh” moments.
You know the things people always say are true, or thing you think you know.
When they finally sink in it’s a smack in the face.
When it hits you, you pause, shake your head, and realize that what you’ve always heard is true.
I suppose universal truths, are universal for a reason. It just takes a while to learn them sometimes, and even when they finally sink in the real knowledge of the thing takes a lot longer to fully sink in.
