Adegbite Kelvin: I Have Learned

Hi, I will like to share with you some little things I have learned not quite long in this life…

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 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’s not what you have in your life but who you have in your life that counts.

I’ve learned that you should never ruin an apology with an excuse.

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.

I’ve learned that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I’ve learned that it’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

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 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 money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I’ve learned that my best friend and I can do anything good or
nothing bad 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 your family won’t always be there for you.
It may seem funny, but people you aren’t related to can take care of you and love you and teach you to trust people again. Families aren’t biological.

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 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 a rich person is not the one who has the
most, but is one who needs the least.

I’ve learned that we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

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 you try to protect your
children, they will eventually get hurt and you will also get hurt in the process.

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 credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I’ve learned that the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

I’ve learned that it’s hard to determine where to draw the line between being nice and not hurting people’s
feelings, and standing up for what you believe.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you. said, and people will
forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    I have filing this away in my evernote. This is very relevant. Thanks, Kelvin! This line made an impact on me: “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.” Thanks for the lessons, pal!
