What Things in Life Are Better Understood Through Experience?

On Quora, someone asked:

“What things are very difficult to grasp when just reading about it?

For example, as a male, I cannot fully understood how it feels to be pregnant or give birth. Reading about it seems a terribly inadequate substitute.

There are also some aspects of the human condition such as heartbreak and facing one’s fears that can’t be adequately explained in writing, until the person experiences it for themselves.

What are other examples of this?”

This is how I responded:

Loneliness and depression. Everyone can talk about how lonely and depressed they feel, however no one truly understands these emotions until they experience it themselves.
