Things I've Learned

(found on a friend's facebook page, but worth reposting)

Things I've Learned:

... that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

... that we shouldn't try to change friends or those we love, but understand that they can and will change.

... that true friendship will grow, even over the longest distance.

... that it IS taking me a long time to become the person I want to be... It takes constant effort and I am no where near being completed.

... that you should always leave people with kind words. It may be the last time you see them, and you can't take back anything.

... that you can keep going long after you think you can't.

... that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

... that either you control your attitude or it controls you. And it's better to control it than live with the regrets it causes if you do not.

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

... that maturity is how you have dealt with life and what you've learned and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

... that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself- easier said than done, most of the time.

... that no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you need to forgive them for whatever they do, bearing in mind that you'll hurt your friends too... sometimes without even knowing it.

... that no matter how badly your heart is broken, the world will not stop for your sorrow.

... that our background and circumstances may influence who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

... two people can look at the exact same thing and yet see something totally different than each other.

... that even when you think you have no more to give, when a loved one cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

... that laughter is contagious, compassion hurts you as others are hurting, sometimes you need a hug when you don't really want it, and it's ok to be silly.

...that your very best friends will hold on to you with both hands while you are fighting and trying with all your might to push them away because you are deeply hurting.

... that you shouldn't be eager to find out a secret. It could change your life in ways you won't like.

... the biggest room in the world is the room for improvement, and it's a journey to get there.

... that others can motivate you to take a very close look at yourself, and they may not even realize they have done so.

... that the people you care about most in life leave all too soon.

...that people are too quick to condemn, yet want grace and forgiveness when they make the same mistakes.

I e-mailed this to Kelsey. Better for the younger people to read, I'd think, since these are things we've already learned (or should've by now).

Nay. I'm literally fighting for my life. He has this huge list of things he wants me to eat regularly (on top of vitamins he prescribes). It's crazy being me. Meh. That's why I'm mean and vicious and all that.

*hugs* You can be vicious as long as you're not mean to me. No biting. I said no biting!

So... he wants you to eat, and eat healthily? I'm not seeing anything wrong with that.

Biting is fun :F No, he's loading me up on specific foods, which don't include pie. Where's the fun in /that/?

Mmmm biting.


Maybe you just need to spray like a peach pie scent on the people you're biting? :D

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
