I’ve Learned….

I’ve learned – That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are,
but we are responsible for who we become.

I’ve learned – That sometimes when my friends fight, I’m forced to choose sides even when I don’t want to.
I’ve learned – That just because two people argue, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. And just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do.
I’ve learned – That sometimes you have to put the individual ahead of their actions.
I’ve learned – That we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
I’ve learned – That you shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.
I’ve learned – That two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
I’ve learned – That no matter how you try to protect your children, they will eventually get hurt
and you will hurt in the process.
I’ve learned – That there are many ways of falling and staying in love.
I’ve learned – That no matter the consequences, those who are honest with themselves
get farther in life.
I’ve learned – That no matter how many friends you have, if you are their pillar
you will feel lonely and lost at the times you need them most.
I’ve learned – That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you.
I’ve learned – That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you,
you will find the strength to help.
I’ve learned – That writing, as well as talking, can ease emotional pains.
I’ve learned – That the paradigm we live in is not all that is offered to us.
I’ve learned – That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
I’ve learned – That the people you care most about in life are taken from you too soon.
I’ve learned – That although the word “love” can have many different meanings,
it loses value when overly used.
I’ve learned – That it’s hard to determine where to draw the line between being nice and
not hurting people’s feelings and standing up for what you believe.
