So people say that serving a full-time mission gets you to grow and learn in cool ways, but they generally mean spiritual things by that.
For me, i think that the most important thing i learned from being a full-time missionary was how to laugh. I come to this conclusion by recalling how many people commented on how after my mission i was able to give in fully to laughter when i thought something was funny, whereas beforehand i’d always been a bit reserved about laughter.
And i think that just that result alone would have been reason enough to have gone.
