What I have learned about Loved Ones
- author unknown
I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.
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.
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 we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
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 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 their dreams are unlikely or outlandish. Few things are more humiliating, and what a tragedy it would be if they 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 it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others.
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 you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.
I've learned that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
