Sometimes "the hard way" is actually
"the only way" to learn. No matter what
anyone says or warns you about beforehand,
you cannot see it until you have lived it.

Then it becomes crystal clear.

But in those times, part of the lesson
is also to be more forgiving of yourself
as you learn, and to then be less critical
of others who are living those lessons
that you have already lived and learned.
