Lessons of Love

Originally Published 1/22/1999


Dear Cyberfriends,

  I hope that you have recovered from the holiday season, and have joyfully emerged into 1999!

  Though I know this email is a little long, I wanted to share it in its entirety because each thought is really beautiful. So please take a moment, take three deep, slow, luxurious breaths, and as you exhale, focus in the moment on the following:

Iíve 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.
Iíve learned-
that no matter how much I care,
some people just donít care back.
Iíve learned-
that it takes years to build up trust,
and only seconds to destroy it.
Iíve learned-
that itís not what you have in your life
but who you have in your life that counts.
Iíve learned-
that you can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes.
After that, youíd better know something.
Iíve learned-
that you shouldnít compare
yourself to the best others can do.
Iíve learned-
that you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.
Iíve learned-
that itís taking me a long time
to become the person I want to be.
Iíve learned-
that you should always leave
loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.
Iíve learned-
that you can keep going
long after you canít.
Iíve learned-
that we are responsible for what we do,
no matter how we feel.
Iíve learned-
that either you control your attitude
or it controls you.
Iíve 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.
Iíve learned-
that money is a lousy way of keeping score.
Iíve learned-
that my best friend and I can do anything
or nothing and have the best time.
Iíve learned-
that sometimes when Iím angry
I have the right to be angry,
but that doesnít give me
the right to be cruel.
Iíve learned-
that true friendship continues to grow,
even longest distance.
Same goes for true love.
Iíve learned-
that just because someone doesnít love
you the way you want them to doesnít
mean they donít love you with all they have.
Iíve learned-
that maturity has more to do with
what types of experiences youíve had
and what youíve learned from them
and less to do with how many
birthdays youíve celebrated.
Iíve 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.
Iíve learned-
that your family wonít always be there for you.
It may seem funny, but people you arenít
related to can take care of you and love you
and teach you to trust people again.
Families arenít biological.
Iíve learned-
that no matter how good a friend is,
theyíre going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.
Iíve learned-
that it isnít always enough to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes you are to learn to forgive yourself.
Iíve learned-
that no matter how bad your heart is broken
the world doesnít stop for your grief.
Iíve learned-
that our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are,
but we are responsible for who we become.
Iíve learned-
that just because two people argue,
it doesnít mean they donít love each other
And just because they donít argue,
it doesnít mean they do.
Iíve learned-
that we donít have to change friends
if we understand that friends change.
Iíve learned-
that you shouldnít be so eager to find out a
secret. It could change your life forever.
Iíve learned-
that two people can look at the exact same thing
and see something totally different.
Iíve learned-
that no matter how you try to protect your children,
they will eventually get hurt
and you will hurt in the process.
Iíve learned-
that your life can be changed in the matter of
hours by people who donít even know you.
Iíve learned-
that when you think you have no more to give,
when a friend cries out to you,
you will find the strength to help.
Iíve learned-
that credentials on the wall
do not make you a decent human being.
Iíve learned-
that the people you can about most in life
are taken from you too soon.
Iíve learned-
that itís hard to determine where to draw the line
between being nice and not hurting peopleís feelings
and standing up for what you believe.

With blessings of bliss, fulfillment, affluence, and love,
