Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say

Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say
And that's the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.
Not everyone means everything they say. This is a tough life lesson to learn, especially to those people who grew up instilled with principles of honesty and integrity deeply embedded in their psyche. As we face the real world, we would like to think that everyone is honest, and has the best intentions, but this is simply not true. We have to take the world for what it is.

This doesn't mean that we should go around being dishonest just because everyone else is but it does mean that we shouldn't be so naive to believe that what everyone says is true. An old saying might be a little too harsh but it is something to think about "Believe only half of what you see, and none of what you hear." Learn to trust those who only deserve your trust and no one who doesn't.

It's Beautiful When Two Strangers Become Best Friends
It's beautiful when two strangers become best friends, it's terribly depressing when two best friends become strangers.
One crazy thing about life is the fact that we never know who is going to be there for us in times that we thought they always would. Sometimes people that you consider your closest friends disappear by your side, while people that you least expect to be there for you, make their way into your life when you need it most.

You Can Only Lose What You Cling To
You can only lose what you cling to.
When we hold onto people and material things too tightly, we often find that we lose them. Without the correct balance in life many things fail easily. Often times when things fail they fail as a result of us doing entirely too much. When we try to control relationships by being manipulative or forceful in our ideals we often find we push the other person away so much that they remove their presence, sometimes in both the physical and mental nature.
