Life lessons

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Heard this on Sunday, thought I'd share.

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 whom you have in your life that counts.

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 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 sometimes when I'm angry I may have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

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 two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I've learned that no matter how good a friend is, you're going to feel hurt by them 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 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.

And finally…

I’ve learned that you can keep going long after you think you can’t.

    I've learnt that however worthless something might be, if you leave it out, someone will nick it.

    I've learned that anything worth learning can't be summed up in a sound bite. :p

    I've learnt that some people just aren't worth the grief they cause and you're better off without them in your life

    Work hard for what you want and don't give up your aspirations for anyone

    Some people really hurt you in life and it's not until you begin to heal that you realise that they also did it for your own good as well as theirs

    You will always miss some people, not matter what

    There are alot of nasty manipulative people who enjoy hurting others, but there are also some absolute angels
