Things I Know I know that I cannot make someone love me. All I can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them. I know that no matter how much I care, some people just dont care back. I know that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.
I know that its not what I have in my life, but but who I have in my life that counts. I know that I shouldnt compare myself to the best others can do, but to the best I can do. I know that its taking me a long time to become the person I want to be. I know that its easier to react than it is to think. I know that I should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time I see them. I know that I can keep going long after I think I cant.
I know that I am responsible for what I do, no matter how I feel. I know that either I control my attitude or it takes over control of me. I know that learning to forgive takes practice. I know that money is a lousy way of keeping score. I know that my best friends and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.
I know that sometimes the people I expect to kick me when I am down will be the ones to help me get back up. I know that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. The same goes for true love. I know that just because someone doesnt love me the way I want them to, doesnt mean they dont love me with all they have. I know that no matter how good a friend someone is, theyre going to hurt me every once in a while, and I must forgive them for that.
I know that it isnt always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes I have to forgive myself. I know that no matter how bad my heart is broken, the world doesnt stop for my grief. I know that my background and circumstances may have influenced who I am, but I am responsible for who I become. I know that I dont have to change friends if I understand that friends change.
I know that I shouldnt be so eager to find out a secret. It could change my life forever. I know that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different. I know that no matter how many friends I have, I will feel lonely and lost at times . I know that my life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who dont even know me.
I know that even when I think I have no more to give, when a friend cries out to me I will find the strength to help. I know that credentials on the wall do not make me a decent human being. I know that the people I care most about in life are taken from me too soon. I know that although the word love can have many different meanings, it loses value when over used. I know that I can do something in an instant that will give me a heartache for life. I know that love is not for me to keep, but to pass on to the next person I meet.
I know most of all that I still have a LOT to learn to know everything.
