One thing about getting older? You acquire a fair share of wisdom from life experiences both good and bad. We asked Huff/Post50 readers on Facebook what life lessons they've learned after more than 50 years around the block, that they wished they had learned sooner. And we received a wide range of responses. Check them out in the slideshow below.
