What I’ve Learned From Life

What+Ive+Learned+From+Life

I have learned that you have to be careful with who you trust.  The people who you’re close to, are the ones who can hurt you the most.  The ones who truly stick with you are the ones that love you for who you are, no matter what. I’ve learned you have to be a good friend but remember to take care of yourself.  It’s important to be there for the people who need you the most. 

Make sure to be a good communicator but also a good listener.  You have to let go of things from the past because that stuff doesn’t matter.  You have to be who you want to be. You have to be there for your family because in the end they are the ones who are with you forever.  I’ve learned that you can’t let your past define who you are.  Sometimes beauty is not only on the outside but on the inside. 

Yes the past can hurt, but you must move on.  Change is a part of life.  You can never give up.  If people can’t accept you, for you then they are not really your friends.  Sometimes it is good to have time to yourself. You have to know how to have a real conversation with someone.  Phones can do a lot but you have to learn how to communicate without them. 

I’ve learned that people can change and there is nothing you can do about it.  Anything you want in your life, give it to yourself first.  Be there for yourself first.  Being there for yourself and others is all that really matters.
