From time to time, you will make mistakes, their enevitable. Sometimes those mistakes will be huge. What matters is that you learn from them. There is nothing wrong with falling down as long as you end up just two inches taller and you pick yourself up off the floor. At times, you might end up far away from home. You might not be sure of where you belong antmore, but home is always there. Because home is not a place. It's where ever your passion takes you. As you continue on your path, you will loose some friends and gain new ones. The process is painful but often necessary. They will change and you will change because life is change. From time to time, they must find their own way. And that way might not be yours. Enjoy them for what they are. And remember them for what they were. Theres not much left. Except, I believe, I really do believe that sooner or later, not matter what happens, things do work out. We have hard times, we suffer, we lose loved ones, the road is never easy. It was never meant to be easy. But in the long run, if you stay true to what you believe, things do work out. Always, be willing to fight for what you believe in. It does not matter if a thousand people agree with you or one person agrees with you. It doesn't matter if you stand completely alone, fight for what you believe. ... Never start a fight, but always finish it!
