what i've learned so far...

Love is one of the single most important emotions there is

Friendships can be sustained even if the intimate relationship fails

Real frienships can endure time and distance

An ounce of positivity can outweigh a pound of negativity

The failures we endure are becaues we were too afraid to 1) speak up, 2) try or 3) have faith

Just because someone wronged us, doesn't mean we should carry that weight. Forgive them, forgive yourself, and move on

A kind word, a listening ear, and an open heart can make the difference between life and death

A leap of faith can be the biggest step you ever take

Open and honest communication is the true key to any successful relationship

Trust, respect, and communication are the key building blocks to any relationship (intimate or platonic)

When you mess up, own up to it, it builds character, respect, and ones ability to be human

Understanding and healing your past provides a better future

Blessings come in many forms, make sure you take the time to notice them

Trials are the cornerstone of triumpths

I may not be perfect, but some parts of me are excellent

When you've walked the walk, then you can talk the talk

Having a college education doesn't make you smarter, it means to spent more money to learn how to be smart

Common sense really isn't that common

Material things are nice, but they don't really show your core worth or wealth

You may trip or stagger, but you don't have to fall and if you do, dust yourself and keep on going

Find the one thing you truly love about yourself and live it, be it, embrace it, and nuture it

Even when you think you have nothing to give; you do...love and a smile

Still waters run deep

Be careful not to confuse sex for love and love for sex

Sex is overrated if you don't have a real connection with the person

Taking some "me" time doesn't make you selfish; it makes you stronger, whole, and fulfilled

Trying something new can be wonderful

Standing for something will prevent you from falling for anything

What can you add?

Love to live; live to love!

Hi Blu!

Love is NOT supposed to hurt

Sometimes you just have to let go and let God

When someone shows you who they really are, believe them!

@ Wendy - true words and real talk right there! You get it!

@Keith - Just speaking the truths as I've learned them.

@ Terry - Maybe I was dear friend; maybe I was. Either way, I hope you got something out of this.

@Ruthibelle - and what a good motto that is.

Love to live; live to love!

Don't force it! Accepting the answer allows an opportunity for self-reflection and growth. Moreover, the possibility that God doesn’t approve.

This of course could mean something different from one to another depending on the hearer.
