I Have Learned


I've Learned ,

that you cannot make someone love you.

All you can do is be

someone who can be loved.

The rest is up to them.

I've learned ,

that no matter how much I care,

some people just don't care back.

I've learned ,

that it takes years to build up trust,

and only seconds to destroy it.

I've learned ,

that it's not what you have in your life

but who you have in your life that counts.

I've learned ,

that you can get by on charm

for about fifteen minutes.

After that, you'd better know something.

I've learned ,

that you shouldn't compare

yourself to the best others can do

but to the best you can do.

I've learned ,

that it's not what happens to people

that's important. It's what they do about it.

I've learned ,

that you can do something in an instant

that will give you heartache for life.

I've learned ,

that no matter how thin you slice it,

there are always two sides.

I've learned ,

that it's taking me a long time

to become the person I want to be.

I've learned ,

that it's a lot easier

to react than it is to think.

I've learned ,

that you should always leave

loved ones with loving words.

It may be the last time you see them.

I've learned ,

that you can keep going

long after you think you can't.

I've learned ,

that we are responsible for what we do,

no matter how we feel.

I've learned ,

that either you control your attitude

or it controls you.

I've learned ,

that regardless of how hot and steamy

a relationship is at first,

the passion fades and there had better be

something else to take its place.

I've learned ,

that heroes are the people

who do what has to be done

when it needs to be done,

regardless of the consequences.

I've learned ,

I've learned ,

that there are people who love you dearly,

but just don't know how to show it.

I've learned ,

that money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I've learned ,

or nothing and have the best time.

I've learned ,

that sometimes the people you expect

to kick you when you're down

will be the ones to help you get back up.

I've learned ,

that sometimes when I'm angry

I have the right to be angry,

but that doesn't give me

the right to be cruel.

I've learned ,

that true friendship continues to grow,

even over the longest distance.

Same goes for true love.

I've learned ,

that just because someone doesn't love you

the way you want them to doesn't mean

they don't love you with all they have.

I've learned ,

that maturity has more to do with

what types of experiences you've had

and what you've learned from them

and less to do with how many

birthdays you've celebrated.

I've learned ,

that you should never tell a child

their dreams are unlikely or outlandish.

Few things are more humiliating, and

what a tragedy it would be

if they believed it.

I've learned ,

that your family won't always

be there for you. It may seem funny,

but people you aren't related to

can take care of you and love you

and teach you to trust people again.

Families aren't biological.

I've learned ,

that no matter how good a friend is,

they're going to hurt you

every once in a while

and you must forgive them for that.

I've learned ,

that it isn't always enough

to be forgiven by others.

Sometimes you have to learn

to forgive yourself.

I've learned ,

that no matter how bad

your heart is broken

the world doesn't stop for your grief.

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.

the individual ahead of their actions.

if we understand that friends change.

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.

that no matter how you try to protect

your children, they will eventually get hurt

and you will hurt in the process.

that there are many ways of falling

and staying in love.

I've learned ,

those who are honest with themselves

get farther in life.

I've learned ,

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.

do not make you a decent human being.

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.

The idea is to die young as late as possible

Don't worry about old age, it doesn't last that long.

Every now and then I throw in one of those typos to see who's paying attention :-)

Give me the grace to see a joke, to get some humor out of life and smiling it on to other folk.

You only live once!   So make sure you spend 15 hours on the internet everyday, seeking validation from strangers.
