I've learned.... (Anonymous)

I've learned that... can keep going long after you think you can't.
...we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
...either you control your attitude or it controls you.
...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.
...heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
...learning to forgive takes practice.
...there are people who love you dearly, but just don't know how to show it. is a lousy way of keeping score. best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.
...sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
...true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.
...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.
...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 years you've lived. should never tell a child that their dreams are unlikely or outlandish. Few things are more humiliating, and what a tragedy it would be if they believed you.
...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. matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that. isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself. matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.
...our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
...sometimes when my friends fight, I'm forced to choose sides even when I don't want to.
...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.
...sometimes you have to put the individual ahead of their actions. shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.
...two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different. matter how you try to protect your children, they will eventually get hurt and you will hurt in the process.
...there are many ways of falling and staying in love. matter the consequences, those who are honest with themselves get farther in life. matter how many friends you have, if you are their pillar you will feel lonely and lost at the times you need them most.
...your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.
...even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.
...writing, as well as talking, can ease emotional pains.
...the paradigm we live in is not all that is offered to us.
...credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
...the people you care most about in life are taken from you too soon.
...although the word "love" can have many different meanings, it loses value when overly used.'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.
