    Yes, the experience is enriching and has an extremely evolutionary impact on the individual.

    But it hurts..

    Bebeline ...

    Don't know about it being 'enriching' and 'evolutionary',

    but it sure can be a roller-coaster ride.

    It's the journey, not the destination that matters.

    it DEPENDS

    it all depends on your individual outlook on life (and all it entails).....and for some it might be a day to day outlook....

    on some days I think...."love stinks" and ignorance is bliss so I wish I'd never met so and so because losing them screwed me over real well

    other times when I feel hopeful I think...."yes, so and so and I shared wonderful times and I became a better person (a stronger and wiser person) because of what I learned from them and from our relationship.... (shortly after which I gag from not being used to such "happy" thoughts)

    I guess it just varies according to how I want things to "fit"

    It is the knowledge from the experience that counts - in this life and perhaps in afterlife...

    I agree with Ana, more or less.
    But from my personal experience (and in the words of K (MIB)):"try it."
