What's the single most important lesson you've learned from playing D&D?

I know this sounds strange, considering what D&D is, but the most important lesson I've learned by playing Dungeons and Dragons is to just be myself. I feel like I should elaborate on this further, but it would be forced. Playing D&D helped me break out of my shell. It gave me the confidence to be myself and say what was on my mind. By escaping to fantasy, I learned how to handle my reality.
Also, don't split the party...
