I Believe

I believe- That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I believe-That no matter how good a friend is,they're going to hurt you every once in awhile and, you must forgive them for that.

I believe-That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I believe-That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I believe-That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I believe-That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them

I believe-That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I believe-That we are responsible forwhat we do, no matter how we feel.

I believe-That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I believe-That regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and therehad better be something else to take its place.

I believe-That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done,regardless of the consequences.

I believe-That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I believe-That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time!

I believe-That sometimes the people you expect to kick you whenyou're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

I believe-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 believe-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 believe-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 believe-That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I believe-That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I believe-That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I believe-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 believe-That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I believe-That two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I believe-That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.

I believe-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 believe-That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I believe-That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

I believe-That it is hard not to judge people but it is worth trying not to.

I believe-In saying you're sorry and meaning it with all of your heart.

I believe-That putting a free toy in cereal is a really great idea.

I believe-That we should help people in some small way every day that we possibly can, even if that just means smiling at someone or opening a door for them.

I believe-That kisses are wonderful.

I believe-That everyone has a story that can make you cry.

I believe-That you should share this with all of the people that you believe in.

...I believe-I just did.

(Thanks Jennifer, notice I added a few)

Nice post - I agree - lots of good reflective I believe's - can you do one now for "What happened?" - like "What happened to when I was a kid and could eat an entire cake of icing and it tasted good?"

"What happened when parents said eating 14 pixie sticks was "too sweet" and I had no idea what they meant?"
