Motivational Monday: 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 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 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 are 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 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 you shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I’ve learned-

I’ve learned-
that no matter how you try to protect your children, they will eventually get hurt and you will 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.

Just wanted to send you a little note to let you know (if you care! lol) that I went through 2 years of some problems with infertility, lotsa procedures and medications, and ended up having a beautiful baby girl almost 2 years ago. And when she was 3 months old, we surprisingly got pregnant on our own with another little girl, who will be one in December! :) Don’t be scared or mad at your body… just do whatcha gotta do to be a Mommy! You will be amazing. Xoxo Good Luck and have fun trying!!

    Today is my first day on yur page. and I luv it! let me you what I learned, to never live with regret. my little brother past away when he was 21 his name was Michael. we were very close, wen he was a baby I would sit and sing to him well he slept in his crib. when we were teenagers we shaired a room and at bed time he would say sing to me Alma and I would :) I am 3 yrs older then him. I can’t carry a tune believe me lol mike was a amazing brother and friend everyone Loved him. right befor he died everyone was mad at him, he had some troubles and everyone was just so tired and disapointed in him. a week befor he died everyone said to me do not help him anymore, well i sat and talked with him and I told him that I Loved him and I would never give up on him, not even if he gave up on himself! he died a week later. everyone but me has to live with the regret of turning him away, but not me! always Love yur brother rob like its yur last day with him. no regrets! I know u love rob, but we can all Luv harder and better as we grow and learn.

    Hey there. I love watching you and your sisters on the show. I just wanted to thank you so much for sharing with people what’s happening with the whole fertility treatment stuff. I have struggled with infertility for about four years — first year just kept trying and then saw a doctor. It’s certainly not fun, and really no one understands how you feel or all the crud you have to go through. My friends seemed utterly baffled with me, and they just did not get it! Anyway, a lot of people struggle with all kinds of things that can cause fertility challenges, and I think it’s great for you to show the emotional and honestly really stressful side of everything to help people understand that it’s really not that easy. I will be praying for you and Lam. Four IVFs and a lot of heartache later, I finally conceived twins and am preggers right (due in 10 weeks) now after many, many treatments trying to figure out what was going on. We almost gave up, but I am so glad we didn’t. Please hang in there and thank you so much for opening up your life in this way. I promise, you are an inspiration to many right now who are also struggling. Hugs.

    Hi,

    I wanted to let you know that I admire you so much. I know that it gets old having so many people in your face about the infertility. People say they understand what you are going through and have been there but I do not think anyone including myself could ever relate with living such a public life and having to go through something so private for the world to see. My husband and I have tried for 11 years to have a child. I have been through so much and I think the pity in everyone’s eyes when they would find out I was infertile and then when I failed at conception with every different proceedure I tried was just as devestating as not being able to concieve. I wish you all the best in the world and know that it will happen for you. Thank you so much for sharing this struggle and please know I pray for your BFP!!!!!! It all may seem confusing and overwhelming with the tests, meds, and procedures that lie ahead but just keep a positive attitude and have faith!!! I know it gets to be sooooooo annoying to hear ‘stay free of stress”, “try not to worry”, ect…..Just do not let it get you down and keep moving forward. Sending much love and ***baby dust**** your way!!!!!!! <3

    Thanks for sharing your story. I am currently going thru the exact same thing and it’s comforting knowing that I am not alone. It was emotional watching your episode, because I have the same feelings. Best of luck and best wishes, whatever happens is our soul’s journey and it just makes us stronger women:)
