Lessons from a guy called Life.

Obviously I am not old enough to have a biography ... not for a really long time. Atleast not until I start shitting my pants and I can't hold my piss anymore. The motherland is reaching her Golden Jubilee next week and I'll be damned if I haven't learned anything. I'm aging by the day, I am way past puberty and am done with high school. Surely, there's something I have learned in all that time. Today, I list some of life's lessons:

I have learned that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
I've learned that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
I've learned that its taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.
I've learned that you can keep going long after you can't.
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.( So I groom another suitor on the side, so what?)
I've learned that money is a lousy way of keeping score.
I've learned that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you are down, will be the ones to help you get back up.
I've learned 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.
I've learned 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 years you have lived.
I've learned that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
I've learned that no matter how much you are hurting, the world doesn't stop for your grief. Trust me the sun WILL shine the next day.
I've learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
I've learned that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever, and not even in a good way.
I've learned that two people can look at the same thing and see something totally different.
I have learned that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.
I've learned that when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.
I've learned that credentials on the wall don't make you a decent human being.
I've learned that the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.
I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people just don't care back.
I've learned that its not what you have in your life but who you are or who u have in your life that count.
I've learned that learning to forgive takes practice.
I've learned that there are people who love you dearly, but just don't know how to show it.

Everything, I just put down, I learned from my own experiences and those of people around me.
Knowing all this, has made all the difference.
