Failure & Waste

    Is an action (process, event, situation, relationship, result) a "waste" of time or a "failure" if you learn something or gain something different than you expected?  As Oprah famously says, "When you know better, you do better."
    I believe it is largely a matter of perspective.  For example:  Did I waste 20+ years on my ex-husband?  We are divorced, but I traveled, went to college, found a career, and grew as a person.  Should I discount all that because the marriage failed?
    Experience is the best teacher and "failing" is part of that.  Failing may, in fact, save you from something worse.
