How you found us: a real person
           
I've learned...

This is so true about life. I thought I'd share. I'm sure everyone can relate to just about all of these...


I've learned that the people you care most about in life are taken away from you way to soon and all the less important ones just never go away.

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 no matter how much I care,
some people just don't care back.

I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.

for about fifteen minutes.
After that, you'd better know something.

may have influenced who we are,
but we are responsible for who we become.

I usually don't have the patience either, but boredom trumped that, so I read the whole thing. A few of them are repeated. Regardless, interesting comments. Apparently, I have learned very little.
