I Believe


I believe - 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 believe- That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.


I believe- That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.


I believe- That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.


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 a while 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 keep going long after you think you can't.


I believe- That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.


I believe- That either you control your attitude or it controls you.


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 friend 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 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 learn to forgive yourself.


I believe- That no matter how badly 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, it doesn't mean they don't love each other. And just because they don't argue, it 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 you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.


I believe- That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I believe- That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon
