    Unhappy Lessons I have learnt in Life.

    but to the best you can do.

    to react than it is to think.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    I've learned ...

    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 think you can't.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    I've learned ...
    that we are responsible for what we do,
    no matter how we feel.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    I've learned ...

    or it controls you.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    I've learned ...

    a relationship is at first,
    the passion fades and there had better be
    something else to take its place.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    I've learned ...

    -----------------------------------------------------
    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.
    -----------------------------------------------------

    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
    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 no matter how bad
    your heart is broken
    the world doesn't stop for your grief.
    -----------------------------------------------------

    that sometimes when my friends fight,
    I'm forced to choose sides
    even when I don't want to.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    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 sometimes you have to put
    the individual ahead of their actions.

    if we understand that friends change.

    at the exact same thing
    and see something totally different.

    those who are honest with themselves
    get farther in life.
    -----------------------------------------------------

    if you are their pillar you will feel lonely
    and lost at the times you need them most.

    in a matter of hours
    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 writing, as well as talking,
    can ease emotional pains.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    I've learned ...

    is not all that is offered to us.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    I've learned ...
    that credentials on the wall
    do not make you a decent human being.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    I've learned ...
    that the people you care most about in life
    are taken from you too soon.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    I've learned ...
    that although the word "love"
    can have many different meanings,
    it loses value when overly used.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    I've learned ...
    that it's hard to determine
    where to draw the line
    between being nice and
    not hurting people's feelings
    and standing up for what you believe.

    In my book Noel, Trust is the only bedfellow of Love. One will not survive without the other. However, one can tolerate all and trust none. Mind you, this is in my book. Other books may be
    different.

    I learn that things aren't quite what they seem at times and if you want something, pay the price for it!

    Human judgment is sometimes deceptive, human assessment occasionally shallow.
