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 will all they have. I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, an d only seconds to destroy it. 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 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 you can keep going long after you can't.

Very very true lessons that it sounds like you have lived through. I don't have many but here are the ones I have come to realize. Life is not easy, fair or logical and nothing will change that. No matter what situation you are in take what you are given and make your own path in life because no one can do that except you. No matter how close your friends are you are alone in life, even the closest soul mates must part some day.
