Sometimes when learning comes before experience, it doesn’t make sense right away.

As I’ve Walked Through Life

As I’ve walked through life, I’ve learned that…

You should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

You cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved.

You can let things go in a day of confusion, and spend a lifetime wanting back what you tossed away.

No matter how much you care, some people will not care back.

It takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.

It is not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life that counts.

You can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes. After that, you’d better know something.

You shouldn’t compare yourself to the best others can do, but continually strive to improve on your best.

If someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to, that doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.

Winning is not worth damaging your health or losing your piece of mind.

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

Heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

Money is a lousy way of keeping score.

Sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down will be the ones to help you get back up.

Sometimes when I’m angry, I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.

True friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance.

Maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them. It has less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.

No matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you once in a while, and you must forgive them for that.

It isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you must forgive yourself.

No matter how bad your heart is broken, the world will not stop for your grief. Yet you can take the time out to pick up the pieces, heal, and move on.

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.

We don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

Two people can look at the exact same thing and see two different things.

Even when you think you have no more to give, you will find the strength to help when a friend cries out to you.

Credentials on a wall or behind a name do not make someone a brilliant, successful, or compassionate human being. What the human being brings to the credentials is what counts.
