I've learned that no matter how much you love someone there comes
a time when you have to let them go. Sometimes they come back but most of the time they don't and you only have the memory
of them or being in their arms.
I've learned that no matter how much pain you're in you should never
say, "things can't get much worse than this" because believe me, they will.
I've learned that sometimes even being with loved ones can't take
away the comfort you get from the thought of death when you're really that depressed.
I've learned that it really doesn't matter how many people you're
surrounded by because you can still feel completely and utterly alone.
I've learned that sometimes you can't even rely on your own family
but good friends can make excellent replacements.
I've learned that you really can know who it is you're meant to be
with for the rest of your life when you're young and still naive.
I've learned that no matter how much you love someone you cannot
make them love you back, and trying can just hurt you more in the long run.
I've learned that its painful to love someone you can never have
but even more painful to have love ripped away from you leaving you empty.
I've learned that no matter how nice or trustworthy a person is they
will still hurt you or manipulate you even if they don't do it on purpose.
I've learned that the more lies you tell and the longer you wait,
the harder it becomes to tell the truth.
I've learned that once you cut for the first time, the desire to
do it again will never go away.
I've learned that even when you've hit one of your lowest lows, just
one person having a little bit of faith in you can make all the difference.
I've learned that no matter how much you give people they will always
want more and sometimes your best simply isn't good enough.
I've learned that life is never how you expect it to be but that
doesn't mean its never how it was meant to be.
I've learned that if you can't dream then you have nothing to live
I've learned that sometimes you just have to hurt in order for the
pain to go away sooner.
I've learned that there is no replacement for the friends that are
always there for you because they are once in a lifetime and no matter how horrible the rest of life is I am extremely lucky
to have my friends (and my sisters).
I've learned that no matter how much you love someone they may not
be there when you wake up the next day or sign onto your computer at night so you should take advantage of every opportunity
to tell them you love them.
If there is someone you love as a friend or as a sister/brother
or even more then please pass this on to them so they can know. And now I feel all weird for having started a forward. So
in the immortal words of my dearest friend/sister, "Peace poptarts."
