Life tried to tell me that strength has many different meanings

At times it looked like shouting back

Other times like hitting or punching the other person

At other times, measured by how many beers you could handle

But life also taught me to define things by myself

Not how the celebrity or the politician or even the teacher or the parent defines it

I learnt that at times strength is keeping quiet

At other times, it’s just being nice

Sometimes, being able to get up when you’ve fell so many times

At times,it’s that smile and the courage to say, ‘I’m okay’

Other times it’s just crying

Then at times it’s letting go

… of something you’ve always wanted to hold on to

At times, it’s being able to stand up for others

Being kind to the person whose never treated you right

At times it is having the power to say NO or even YES

Other times its being able to tell someone how you really feel

Of course not everyone agrees

That’s always got me asking ‘What is strength?’

All in all, I do know that I am strong.



Is it bad

When he says hi to her

Before he says it to you

Is it bad when the first thing he thinks of in the morning

Is her and not you

Is it bad when it seems like he is falling for her

And forgetting you

Is it bad

When you can’t talk to him about her

But you can about everything else

Is it bad

When you feel like moving on

Instead of living a lie

Is it bad

When you feel like you are not good enough for him

Because the other woman is

Or is it just jealousy

Or probably paranoia

All in all

Is it bad?


This seems to be of real help and gives one a picture of reality, and basically can help one to be strong… but guess what, not everyone is the same, hope these 11 things that high school won’t teach you given by Bill Gate will be of help… it was a good idea for a first post for me

1: Life is not fair -- get used to it!

2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you EARN both.

4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping -- they called it OPPORTUNITY.

6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, LEARN from them.

7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
