I've Learned

by Omer B. Washington -
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 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 you can do something in an instant that will give you a heartache for life.

I've learned that it's not what you have in life but who you have in your life that counts. 
I've learned that no matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides. 
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 there are people who love you dearly but just don't know how to show it. 
I've learned that true friendships continues to grow, even over the longest 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 no matter how good a friend someone is, they're going to hurt you once in a while and you must forgive them for that. 
I've learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn't stop for your grief. 
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 we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

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 there are so many ways of falling and staying in love. 
I've learned that no matter how many friends you have, if you are their pillar, you will feel lonely and lost at the times you need them most. 
I've learned that the people you care most in life are taken from you too soon.

I've learned that although the word "love" can have many different meanings, it loses the value when overly used. 
I've learned that love is not for me to keep but to pass on to the next person I see. 
I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. 
I've learned that everyday you should reach out and touch someone. People love that human touch - holding hands, a warm hug or just a friendly pat on the back.

I've learned that I have a lot to learn.
