William Shakespeare - " I Learned..."
I learned ...
"I learned that I can not demand love from anyone.
I can only give good reasons for them to like me and Patience, for life to do the rest.
I learned that no matter how certain things are important to me, some people do not give a damn and I will never be able to convince them.
I learned that I can spend years building a truth and destroy it in seconds.
I can use my charm for only 15 minutes, after that, I need to know what I'm talking about.
I've learned ... That I can do something in a minute and have to answer for it the rest of my life.
That is cut by more than one sliced bread, this bread still has two faces, and the same goes for everything we cut our way.
I learned ... It will take much to make me the person I want to be, and I must have patience.
But I also learned that I can go beyond the limits that I put myself.
I learned that I need to choose between control my thoughts or be controlled by them.
That heroes are people who do what they think they should do at that time regardless of the fear he feels.
I learned that forgiveness requires much practice.
What a lot of people like me, but can not express it.
I learned ... That in difficult times, the help came just that person that I thought I would try to make things worse.
I learned that I can be angry, I have the right to annoy me, but I have the right to be cruel.
I would never tell a child their dreams are impossible, because it would be a tragedy for the world if I could convince her that.
I learned that my best friend will get hurt from time to time, and I have to get used to it.
That is not enough to be forgiven by others, I need to forgive myself first.
I learned that no matter how much my heart is suffering, the world will not stop because of that.
I learned ... That the circumstances of my childhood are responsible for who I am, but not for the choices I make as an adult;
I learned that a fight must choose which side I am, even when I do not want to get involved.
That when two people argue, does not mean they hate each other, and when two people argue does not mean they love each other.
I learned that as much as I want to protect my children, they will get hurt and I do too. That's part of life.
I learned that my life can change forever in a few hours, because of people I've never seen before.
I also learned that diplomas on the wall do not make me more respectable or wiser.
I learned that love words lose their meaning when used without discretion.
And that friends are not only to keep the bottom of the chest, but to show that they are friends.
I learned that some people leave our lives anyway, even if we wish to retain them forever.
I learned, after all, it is difficult to draw a line between being gentle, do not hurt people, and learn to fight for things I believe. "
