I've learned

I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them. I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others but to the best you can do. I've learned that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life. I've learned that there are always two sides. I've learned that it takes long time to become the person we want to be. I've learned that it's a lot easier to react than it is to think. I've learned that you can keep going long after you think you can't. I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel. I've learned that either you control your attitude or it controls you. I've learned that learning to forgive takes practice. I've learned that some people love you dearly, but don't know how to show it. I've learned 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've learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become. I've learned that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different. I've learned that no matter how you try to protect your children, they will eventually get hurt and you will hurt in the process. I've learned that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being. I've learned that it's hard to determine where to draw the line between being nice and not hurting people's feelings and standing up for what you believe.

As seen here.

Does it count as 'learned' if you don't actually put it into practice!

Lovely words indeed... but I don't think it counts as 'learned' if you don't actually put it into practice!
