Important Life's Lesson

Three weeks from now I will be turning 36 and I am proud of it.  They say that age was just a number and it is up to us if we want to feel young or old. According to Robert Kiyosaki the author of the Rich Dad, Poor Dad best seller series which my husband and I were currently reading "School is important but the street is a better teacher". I remember when mom used to tell us (me and my siblings) that we should learn how to blend with different kinds of people because in reality the world was full of people with different background and belief. As we grow older mom used to send us to different relatives just to learn how to mingle. Back then I never understand why and what she is trying to do to make us feel uncomfortable. The challenges were painful but after so many years of existence, the lessons I've learned was priceless. Now that I am bringing up my own children I am trying my best to teach them the proper way on how to face the world with dignity and integrity. I know there are pros and cons of how my mom raised us all her children, but I believed it is with our own good and benefits. And now that I am a mother and I am getting old and much wiser, I want everything for my children to learn. 
Life Lessons

* 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 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'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 whom you have in 
   your life that counts.

* I've learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who
   we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

* 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 sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but
   that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

* I've learned 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've learned that two people can look at the exact same thing and see 
   something totally different.

* I've learned that no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you  
   every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

* I've learned that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others.  Sometimes
   you have to learn to forgive yourself.

* I've learned that just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't 
   love each other. And, just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

* I’ve learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn’t 
   stop for your grief.

* I’ve learned that no matter how you try to protect your children, they will 
   eventually get hurt, and you will hurt in the process.

* I've learned that you should never tell a child their dreams are unlikely or 
   outlandish.  Few things are more humiliating, and what a tragedy it would be 
   if they believed it.

* I've learned that heroes are people who do what has to be done when it 
   needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

* I’ve learned that you can keep going long after you can’t.

The article above (Life's Lesson)  was adopted from Freemans newspaper, I clipped them way back in 1999 and while weeding out I saw them on my paper files and I used to read them before over and over again especially during in times of extreme confusions (pampalubag luob) and I consider them useful and I want to share them for future reference. Hope you will learn something from them too just like me.
