what i learned
i learned that life doesn't owe me any favors.
i learned that if it's too hard to hang on, it's time to let go.
i learned that home is a place where they will have to take you in, no matter what sort of shit you get yourself into.
i learned that sex is sex, and that intimacy shouldn't be confused with love.
i learned that maturity isn't about not making mistakes, but facing up to the consequences every time you make one.
i learned that love isn't overrated but our idea of it is.
i learned that when they said 'you should learn love to yourself before you can love someone else', they weren't just trying to be cheesy.
i learned that where i am right now, is exactly where i want to be. it might not be where i should end up, but it's where i should be right now...
i learned that happiness is a choice.
i have learned to choose to be happy.
