A friend sent this via e-mail (I didn’t come up with it, and not sure if my friend did either). I liked a lot of the points made here, so thought I’d share it.
I Believe … that we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
I Believe … that no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in awhile and you must forgive them for that.
I Believe … that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.
I Believe … that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
I Believe … that it is taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.
I Believe … that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
I Believe … that you can keep going long after you think you can’t.
I Believe … that you are responsible for what you do, no matter how you feel.
I Believe … that either you control your attitude, or it controls you.
I Believe … that regardless how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there is something better that takes it’s place.
I Believe … that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
I Believe … that money is a lousy way of keeping score.
I Believe … that my best friends and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.
I Believe … that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down, will be the ones to help you get back up.
I Believe … that sometimes when I’m angry, I have the right to be angry, but not the right to be cruel.
I Believe … that just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.
I Believe … 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.
I Believe … that it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to forgive yourself.
I Believe … that no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn’t stop for your grief.
I Believe … that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
I Believe … that just because two people argue doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. And just because they don’t argue, doesn’t mean they do.
I Believe … that you shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.
I Believe … that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different
I Believe … that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you.
I Believe … that even when you think that you don’t have any more to give, you find the strength to help when needed.
I Believe … that credentials on the wall does not make you a decent human being.
I Believe … that the people you care about most in life are taken away from you too soon.
I Believe … that more people believe in you than you would have imagined.
