That we don’t have to change friends if
We understand that friends change.
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.
That true friendship continues to grow,
Even over the longest distance.
That you can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.
That it takes a long time
To become the person you want to be.
That you can keep going
Long after you think you can’t.
That we are responsible for what we do,
That either you control your attitude or it controls you
That your best friend and you can do anything or nothing
And have the best time.
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re
Down will be the ones to help you get back up.
That sometimes when you’re angry
You have the right to be angry, but that
Doesn’t give you the right to be cruel.
That maturity has more to do with the experiences you’ve had
And what you’ve learned from them
And less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.
That no matter how badly Your heart is broken,
The world doesn’t stop for your grief.
That our background and circumstances
May have influenced who we are, but
We are responsible for who we have become.
Two people can look at the same
Thing and see something totally different.
That even when you think You have no more to give,
When a friend cries out to you,
You will find the strength to help.
That credentials on the wall
Do not make you a decent human being.
That the people you care about
Most in life are taken from you too soon.
