Over the past year
I've learned many lessons.
I've learned to appreciate things when you have them because
at any second they could be gone. I've learned to stop and
take in the present, instead of worrying about the past or
future. I've learned to try and find beauty in the
ugliest of places. Everything's beautiful if you look
underneath the layers. I've learned who my true friends are.
Those are the ones who will listen and talk with me until I
finally fall asleep. I've learned that friends come and go.
I've learned to trust few. I've learned that trying new
things will help in the completion of the person I want to
become. I've learned to be a role model to my younger
brother. I've learned that I don't always have to hide my
emotions. It's okay to cry sometimes. It's also okay to
cry over a boy. I've learned not to let my heart go so fast;
it just makes the heartache at the end that much worse. I've
learned that I'm not as strong as I thought I was, but
that's alright. No one's bulletproof and everyone
deserves a weak moment. I've learned that I
can't always please everyone. Picking and choosing is
sometimes necessary in order to live a happy life. I've
learned that first and foremost I need to worry about myself.
Worrying about everything else happening around me is too
overwhelming. I've learned that heartbreak is the absolute
worst feeling ever to be experienced. It never fully goes away.
I've learned to not give out second chances so easily; people
tend to take advantage of this and end up hurting you even more.
I've learned to never lose faith in love; it can cause pain,
but the happiness experienced from the joyous parts of it is
breathtaking. I've learned that no matter how much I want
something, if it doesn't work out, it was never meant to
I guess you could
say- I've grown up.
