    I Have Learned...

    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 fifteen 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 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 regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place.

    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 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.

    I've learned that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

    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 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 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 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 no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

    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 sometimes when my friends fight, I'm forced to choose sides even when I don't want to.

    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 we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

    I've learned 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've learned that writing, as well as talking, can ease emotional pains.

    I've learned that the paradigm we live in is not all that is offered to us.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
