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 love each other.
That we don't have to change friends,
If we understand that friends change.
That no matter how good a friend is,
They are going to hurt you every once in a while,
And you must forgive them for that.
That we are responsible for what we do,
No matter how we feel.
That either you control your attitude,
Or it controls you.
That sometimes when I am angry,
I have the right to be angry,
But that doesn't give me the right
To be cruel.
That maturity has more to do,
With what experiences you've had,
And what you have learned from them,
And less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.
That no matter how bad your heart is broken,
The world doesn't stop for your grief.
That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others,
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.
That our background and circumstances,
May have influenced who we are;
But we are responsible for who we have become.
