What a crazy couple months it has been. I can’t say I’m better off. I can’t say I’m happier than ever or even stronger than ever.
I’ve learned that people who say they’re your friends sometimes turn out to be the opposite and that people do some crazy things and once they start they really don’t stop to see who they’ve run over in the process.
I’ve learned that tests at school don’t measure self worth. You can have an A in the class but thats really not what matters. Book smart and Life smart are two completely different things.
I’ve learned that I don’t need to convince the world that my life is cool and exciting via social media. Sometimes its just better to log out for a week or so.
I’ve learned that sometimes people are mean and hurt the people around them. They have good hearts but they are just confused I guess.
I’ve learned that I can handle my sadness on my own. Its a little difficult at times, but I have learned how to be independent and how to function on my own.
I’ve learned that people change and, at times, it may not be for the better. But, change is inevitable and everyone is entitled to who they choose to be.
I’ve learned that the World is a crazy place and people have their own motives and desires that nobody else can control. I can’t fix the world; Nobody can.
I’ve learned that I probably shouldn’t be as naive (still trying to un-naive myself..its a work in progress)
I’ve learned that you don’t need a million friends to survive through life
I’ve learned that I don’t need to let the world know what I’m doing at all times. Its more gratifying to just take it all in.
I’ve learned that hard work is the only way to attain success and sometimes you have to make sacrifices to follow your heart.
I’ve learned that there is someone out there who cares. Even if its only one person, somebody is out there.
Although a lot of this seems negative, it really isn’t. I have grown a lot these past couple months. They have been hard and I have definitely had a good amount of nights where all I did was cry but I am beginning to see the silver lining. Yeah, I’ll still get down when I see a picture that makes me sad or when things go wrong, but I am better about realizing what really matters. In the long run, only a few things are crucial to being deeply happy-Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and even Tumblr don’t get a spot on that list and they never will.
I’m not really sure why I came here to let this all out but I think theres at least one person out there who will listen and maybe even read this whole thing. Not that it really matters, though.
The greatest gift you can give someone is the space to be his or herself, without the threat of you leaving.
