Do you believe?
I came across some words that are very deep in meaning which I hope will become very influential in the way that we perceive and live our lives and the people involved.
I Believe. . .
. . . 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 love each other.
. . . 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 think 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 heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
. . . 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 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 you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret, it could change your life forever.
. . . 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.
. . . the happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything they have.
QUESTION: Do you believe all of the above? I am still struggling with a few myself but then what substance does life have without effort and subsequent progressions?
But then, I also believe that all efforts in trying to CONVINCE yourself into believing this will be in vain, but in surrendering it all to Him; The Creator, The Healer - you will believe.
