I learned how to lose... a game, an argument or a fight.
I learned that I wasn't always going to win and that I wasn't always going to be the best.
I also learned that you don't always get a second chance.
I'm not sure that's being taught anymore.
I agree that losing is an important part of "growing up." When we started awarding "participation trophies", we tried to pretend as if no one ever has to lose. Unfortunately, that's not how life is.
