I’ve learned that no matter how much I care, some people just don’t care back. 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. I’ve learned that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them. I’ve learned that your family won’t always be there for you. It may seem funny, but people you aren’t related to can take care of you and love you and teach you to trust people again. Families aren’t biological. I’ve learned that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.

We can’t pick our families but we can choose our friends. Trust is so fragile and along with respect the very foundation of real relationships.
I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
