As I Walk Through Life


I've learned
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 I want to be.

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 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
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 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 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 our background and circumstances may have
influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

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 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 your life can be changed in a matter of minutes,
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 credentials on the wall do not
make you a decent human being.

I've learned
that the people you care about most
in life are taken from you too soon.
