We All Know That Grandparents Are So Wise — So Tell Us The Most Important Life Lesson They've Ever Taught You

They may be older, but they sure are wiser.

If you're one of the lucky few who still have your grandparents on this earth, then you've probably received a few bits of wisdom from them at some point in your life — after all, they've been around for quite sometime and probably know a thing or two.

And maybe that bit of advice helped you realize something or maybe it truly changed your life for the better. So with that in mind, we would love to know: What was the greatest life lesson you've learned from your grandparents and why did it impact you so much?

Perhaps your grandfather told you why it's so incredibly important to take a chance on love because he did it with their partner.

Or maybe your grandma provided wisdom on the regrets she had about her own life, which influenced your own view on how you want to handle things in your own life moving forward.

But maybe, yo've learned something from another older loved one — like a neighbor, teacher, or relative — after they already passed, like how they made a difference in their community — and it absolutely changed your view on work and life.

If you did receive some wisdom from an older person or grandparent, how did it make you feel or change your life? And what was life like before and after you received this advice?

If you'd like to share, comment below with the greatest life lesson you've learned from a grandparent and how it impacted you. However, if you prefer to be anonymous, you can fill out this Google form instead.

Some of the responses will be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post.
