This is the most wonderful thing I have ever read on the internet, and I’m not biased just because I got it from my best friend. Just a glimpse.
Via Madeline Jobczynski:

“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. I’ve learned that it’s not what
you have in your life, but who you have in your life that counts. I’ve learned
that you can get by on charm for about 15 minutes. After that, you’d better know
something. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t compare yourself to the best others
can do, but to the best you can do. I’ve learned that it’s not what happens to
people that’s important. It’s what they do about it. I’ve learned that no matter
how thin you slice it, there are always two sides. I’ve learned that it’s taking
me a long time to become the person I want to be. I’ve learned that it’s a lot
easier to react than it is to think. I’ve learned that you should always leave
loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them. I’ve learned
that you can keep going long after you think you can’t. I’ve learned that we are
responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel. I’ve learned that either you
control your attitude or it controls you. I’ve learned that heroes are the
people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the
consequences. I’ve learned that learning to forgive takes practice. I’ve learned
that there are people who love you dearly, but just don’t know how to show it.
I’ve learned that money is a lousy way of keeping score. I’ve learned that my
best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time. I’ve
learned that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down will
be the ones to help you get back up. I’ve learned that sometimes when I’m angry
I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.”
