I've learned -
that it takes years to build up trust,
and only seconds to destroy it.


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 no matter how thin you slice it,
there are always two sides.


I've learned -
that it's a lot easier
to react than it is to think.


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 heroes are the people
who do what has to be done
when it needs to be done,
regardless of the consequences.


I've learned -
that learning to forgive takes practice.


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 -
that my best friend and I can do anything
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 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 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 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 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 two people can look
at the exact same thing
and see something totally different.


I've learned -
that no matter the consequences,
those who are honest with themselves
get farther in life.


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 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.
