12 things I learned in 2012

  1. Safe as houses is the most untrue saying of them all. We were robbed last year. It still doesn't feel safe anywhere near the house. 
  2. If someone tells you they don't believe friendship exists, don't expect them to show you loyalty and support.
  3. A person can only give you what they've received and have in them. It works both on physical and emotional level. 
  4. There is nobody else in the whole wide world that can give you the emotional range that your own kids can. 
  5. No one will ever understand you the way you do, so don't expect them to.
  6. Don't try to prove anything to anyone. 
  7. Life is too short to still be bullied and manipulated by public opinion like when you were a child.
  8. I have grown out of religious forms and into more need of God Himself. 
  9. Sleeping sometimes is art, and sometimes it's science. 
  10. Constructive criticism builds and gives you faith in your abilities. Anything else is plainly destructive, beware.
  11. Sometimes we choose friends, and sometimes God chooses them for us.
  12. We all need someone to believe in us.
