Sometimes we need to write and think for the moment; sometimes we need to be more long range. Sometimes we need to be hard-hitting; sometimes we need to be more philosophical and circumspect. Sometimes we need to step back from the swirling white water and breath deeply of the wider view beauty of life.
•I’ve learned…that no matter how much I care, some people just don’t care back.
•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 true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.
•I’ve learned…that you can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes. After that, you’d better know something.
•I’ve learned…that it’s not what happens to people that’s important. It’s what they do about it.
•I’ve learned…that it’s a lot easier to react than it is to think.
•I’ve learned…that money is a lousy way of keeping score.
•I’ve learned…that no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.
•I’ve learned…that learning to forgive takes practice.
•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 the people you care most about in life are taken from you too soon.
•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 writing, as well as talking, can ease emotional pains.
