Reflection Series - I've Learned

I have been searching for something special to reflect on and Kelsey had posted just what I was looking for! (I am not sure where she found it, but I found the following on her blog!)
1.) I've Learned-
that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.



2.) I've learned- 
that no matter how much I care, some people just don't care back.



3.) I've learned- 
that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.



4.) I've learned- 
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.



5.) I've learned- 
that it's not what you have in your life but who you have in your life that counts.



5.) I've learned- 
that you should never ruin an apology with an excuse.



6.) I've learned- 
that you can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes. After that, you'd better know something.



7.) I've learned- 
that you shouldn't compare yourself to the best others can do.



8.) I've learned- 
that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.



9.) I've learned- 
that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.



10.) I've learned- 
that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.



11.) I've learned- 
that you can keep going long after you can't.



12.) I've learned- 
that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.



13.) I've learned- 
that either you control your attitude or it controls you.



14.) I've learned- 
that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place.



15.) I've learned- 
that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.



16.) I've learned- 
that money is a lousy way of keeping score.



17.) I've learned- 
that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.



18.) I've learned- 
that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down will be the ones to help you get back up.



19.) I've learned- 
that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.



20.) I've learned- 
that people will forget what you said, and people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Of course I have not learned all of these things, but they are definitely things I should learn. It will take time and strength to learn them, so I figure I will reflect on each one every now and then! I will post "Reflections" under my banner and link up the posts! Feel free to reflect as well, as they come up!!

Oh and in case you forgot... my give-away is still open and will be ending tonight around 7-ish, so make sure you have entered!! Only about 20 entries soo far!! Check it out HERE!!
