Con el tiempo aprenders

Despus de algn tiempo aprenders la diferencia entre dar la mano y socorrer a un alma, y aprenders que amar no significa apoyarse, y que compaa no siempre significa seguridad. Comenzars a aprender que los besos no son contratos, ni regalos, ni promesas... Comenzars a aceptar tus derrotas con la cabeza erguida y la mirada al frente, con la gracia de un nio y no con la tristeza de un adulto y aprenders a construir hoy todos tus caminos, Porque el terreno de maana es incierto para los proyectos y el futuro tiene la costumbre de caer en el vaco. Despus de un tiempo aprenders que el sol quema si te expones demasiado... aceptars incluso que las personas buenas podran herirte alguna vez y necesitars perdonarlas... Aprenders que hablar puede aliviar los dolores del alma... Aprenders que las nuevas amistades continan creciendo a pesar de las distancias, y que no importa que es lo que tienes, sino a quien tienes en la vida, y que los buenos amigos son la familia que nos permitimos elegir. Aprenders que no tenemos que cambiar de amigos, si estamos dispuestos a aceptar que los amigos cambian. Te dars cuenta que puedes pasar buenos momentos con tu mejor amigo haciendo cualquier cosa o simplemente nada, solo por el placer de disfrutar su compaa. Descubrirs que muchas veces tomas a la ligera a las personas que ms te importan y por eso siempre debemos decir a esas personas que las amamos, porque nunca estaremos seguros de cuando ser la ltima vez que las veamos. Aprenders que las circunstancias y el ambiente que nos rodea tienen influencia sobre nosotros, pero nosotros somos los nicos responsables de lo que hacemos. Comenzars a aprender que no nos debemos comparar con los dems, salvo cuando queramos imitarlos para mejorar.

Descubrirs que se lleva mucho tiempo para llegar a ser la persona que quieres ser, y que el tiempo es corto. Aprenders que no importa a donde llegaste, sino a donde te diriges y si no lo sabes cualquier lugar sirve..... Aprenders que si no controlas tus actos ellos te controlarn y que ser flexible no significa ser dbil o no tener personalidad, porque no importa cun delicada y frgil sea una situacin: siempre existen dos lados. Aprenders que hroes son las personas que hicieron lo que era necesario, enfrentando las consecuencias....... Aprenders que la paciencia Requiere mucha prctica. Descubrirs que algunas veces, la persona que esperas que te patee cuando te caes, tal vez sea una de las pocas que te ayuden a levantarte. Madurar tiene ms que ver con lo que has aprendido de las experiencias, que con los aos vividos. Aprenders que hay mucho ms de tus padres en ti de lo que supones. Aprenders que nunca se debe decir a un nio que sus sueos son tonteras, porque pocas cosas son tan humillantes y sera una tragedia si lo creyese porque le estars quitando la esperanza. Aprenders que cuando sientes rabia, tienes derecho a tenerla, pero eso no te da el derecho de ser cruel. Descubrirs que solo porque alguien no te ama de la forma que quieres, no significa que no te ame con todo lo que puede, porque hay personas que nos aman, pero que no saben como demostrarlo..... No siempre es suficiente ser perdonado por alguien, algunas veces tendrs que aprender a perdonarte a ti mismo. Aprenders que con la misma severidad con que juzgas, tambin sers juzgado y en algn momento condenado. Aprenders que no importa en cuantos pedazos tu corazn se parti, el mundo no se detiene para que lo arregles.

Aprenders que el tiempo no es algo que pueda volver hacia atrs, por lo tanto, debes cultivar tu propio jardn y decorar tu alma, en vez de esperar que alguien te traiga flores. Entonces y solo entonces sabrs realmente lo que puedes soportar, que eres fuerte y que podrs ir mucho ms lejos de lo que pensabas cuando creas que no se poda ms. Es que realmente la vida vale cuando tienes el valor de enfrentarla.

Adaptacin de un texto de Veronica Shoffstall:

YOU LEARN *After some time you learn the difference, the subtle difference between giving a hand and fettering a soul; *And you learn that to love doesn't mean to support yourself, and that company doesn't always mean security. *And you learn that kisses are not contracts and that gifts are not promises. *And you start to accept your loss with your head up and eyes straight ahead, with the grace of a grown-up, not the sadness of a child. *You learn to build the roads of today, because tomorrow's land is too unknown to make plans and the future usually falls from nowhere. *After a while you learn that the sun burns if you expose yourself to it for very long. *And you learn that it doesnt matter how much you care, some people just dont. *And you accept that it doesnt matter how good someone can be, they will hurt you once in a while and you have to forgive them for that. *And you learn that talking can be a relief to emotional pain. *You learn that it takes years to build trust and just seconds to destroy it, and you can do things in a second that you will regret for the rest of your life *You learn that friendship continuous to grow even with the distance and that what matters is not what you have in life, but who you are in life. *And you learn that you dont have to change friends if you understand that friends change, and you realize that you and your friend can do nothing or everything and still have good times together. *And you learn that the people you care the most are taken away from you too fast, that is why we should always say caring things to those we love, because it might be the last time we see them *And you learn that you shouldnt compare yourself to others, but to the best you can become. *You learn that it takes a long time for you to become the person you want to be, and that life is too short. *And you learn that it doesn't matter where you've already gotten to, but where you are

going, and if you don't know where you're going, anywhere will do. *You learn that either you control your acts or they will control you, and that being flexible doesn't mean you are being weak, or that you don't have a personality, for no matter how delicate and fragile a situation is, there are always two sides of it. *And you learn that heroes are those that did only what was necessary... *You learn that patience requires a lot of practice. *You find out that sometimes the person that you expect to kick you when you fall, is one of the few that will help you up. *You learn that maturity is about what kind of experiences youve had and what youve learned from them, not how many birthdays you have already celebrated. *You learn that there's more of your parents in you than you suppose. *You learn that you should never tell a child that dreams are foolishness, few things are so humiliating that it would be a tragedy if he believed that. *You learn that when you are angry you have the right to be angry, but that does not give you the right to be cruel. *You learn that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want to be loved, it doesn't mean that the person doesn't know how to love, and s/he loves you as much as s/he can, because there are people who love you, but simply don't know how to show it. *You learn that being forgiven is never enough, sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself. *You learn that with the same harshness that you judge, you someday, will be condemned. *You learn that no matter how many pieces your heart was broken into, the world doesn't stop so you can fix it. *You learn that you cannot go back in time, so you have to take care of your garden and not wait for someone to bring you flowers. *And you learn you can really bear it, that you're really strong and that you can go farther than you think, and that life has a value and you have a value before life! *And you learn that our doubts are disloyal and that makes us lose what we could achieve, if it werent for the fear of trying.
