    The more I learn about human nature,

    the more I despair and lament. Adaption from indoctrination is the only option. But, that is a hard thing, indeed. It's always better to know. But, it always hurts to know. I'm not sure of a base truth I learned that didn't harm me in some way. I think the singularly most...

    Everyone is misunderstood.

    We tend to assume of something unreal for someone. That's why it's important to make time to understand people before even making assumptions and commenting negatively back. Everyone does the same. I think we should uniquely separate ourselves from the common kind of thinking...

    Too many to count and sometimes I just wish I

    My life is no one's fault by my own.

    I choose to act, react, or take no action and those choices dictate my situation. I'm not a victim of anything. Never have been. That was a tough one to swallow.

    When you blame someone

    for something, you put the issue or emotion or circumstance on them, and by doing this you push away the power that you actually have to change the situation, or at the least how you feel about it. There can be no blame in a heart of love. Love shines over all and envelopes like...

    1-Other people's opinion of you is none of your

    business. 2-No one has the right to assess your worth. 3-Never get involved with a coworker. 4-A person's true colors will eventually be revealed. 5-When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. 6-Actions speak louder than words.

    And maybe the most important lesson is

    that there are very, very few absolutes or certainties when it comes human nature. In fact, I'm almost never surprised anymore by what we do, or how we react or think. We are a strange lot ;).
