That we don't have to change friends
if we understand that friends change.
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.
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.
That you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.
That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.
That you should always leave loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them
That we are responsible for what we do,
no matter how we feel.
That either you control your attitude
or it controls you.
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.
That heroes are the people who do what
has to be done when it needs to be done,
regardless of the consequences.
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when
you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.
That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to
be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
That no matter how bad your heart is
broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.
That our background and circumstances may have influenced
who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
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.
That your life can be changed in a matter
of hours by people who don't even know you.
That credentials on the wall do not make
you a decent human being.
That the people you care about most in
life are taken from you too soon.
