All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.

I’ve learned 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.

I’ve learned that it’s not what you have in your life, but who you
have in your life that counts.

After that, you’d better know something.

can do, but to the best you can do.

It’s what they do about it.

you a heartache for life.

there are always two sides.

want to be.

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

I’ve learned that you should always leave loved ones with loving
words. It may be the last time you see them.

no matter how we feel.

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

know how to show it.

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 thelongest 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 you should never tell a child her dreams are unlikely or outlandish. Few things are more humiliating, and what a tragedy it would be if she believed it.

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

don’t love each other. And just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t
mean they do.

I’ve learned that no matter how fast or how far you go, you can’t outrun God.

I’ve learned that no matter how far away I’ve been, God’ll always welcome me back.

I’ve learned that love is not for me to keep, but to pass on to the next person I see.
