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 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. 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 better know something. That you shouldn't 

compare yourself to the best others can do. That you can do

 something in an instant that will give you heartache for life. 

I've learned- 

That it's taking me a long time to become the person that 

I want to be. 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 can't. 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. 

That regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is 

a 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. 

That money is a lousy way of keeping score. 

I've learned- 

That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and 

have the best time. That sometimes the people you expect 

to kick you when you are down will be the ones to help 

you get back up. 

I've learned- 

That sometimes when I get angry I have the right to be angry, 

but it doesn't give me the right to be cruel. That true friendship 

continues to grow over the longest distance, and the 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. 

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 

tragedy it would be if they believed it. That no matter how 

good your 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 good enough to be forgiven by others. 

Sometimes you must learn to forgive yourself. That no matter 

how bad a 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 whom we become. 

That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean that they 

don't love each other, and just because they don't argue, it 

doesn't mean they do. 

I've learned- 

That we don't have to change friends, if we understand that 

friends change. That two people can look at the exact same 

thing and see something totally different. 

I've learned- 

That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people 

who don't even know you. 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 credentials on the wall do not make you a decent 

human being. That the people you care about the most 

in life are taken from you too soon.

I've learned- 

That its hard to determine where to draw the line 

between being nice and not hurting someone else feelings 

or standing up for what you believe. That no matter what 

happens to me on earth or how much my faith falters, 

God's faith in me never dwindles or fails. 

I've learned- 

That life's lessons never end and wisdom can always be 

passed on.
