I Believe

  • 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. Same goes for true love.
  • that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
  • that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.
  • that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
  • that you can keep going long after you can't.
  • that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
  • that either you control your attitude or it controls you.
  • 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.
  • that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
  • that money is a lousy way of keeping score.
  • that my best friend and I 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 I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
  • that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
  • that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.
  • that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
  • that no matter how bad 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 become.
  • 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.
  • that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.
  • that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
  • that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.
  • 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
