I Have To Learn





There are so many things that I have yet to learn. Things that I never could learn. Things that I am not sure I will be able to learn. Things that are a part of being human, as they say.
 
I have to learn that every battle is not my battle and that my happiness does not necessarily make everyone else happy. I have to learn that I suffer alone, and that others do not necessarily suffer with me. I have to learn that I do not have to suffer with and for others all the time. I have to learn that I can eat my ice cream, without feeling guilty about it, when many others cannot eat ice cream. I have to learn that I am a human. I have to learn that being an ordinary human being, I have the right to be happy too. I have to learn all those things that humans do. I have to learn not to be afraid of smiling when I feel like it. I have to learn not to feel pain when I see it. I have to learn to forgive myself for not having the power to cure what ever ills I find. I have to learn that others do not necessarily feel the way I do, about many things. I have to learn that others will not necessarily do for me, what I will do for them, and that I should not expect them to. I have to learn that everyone will undergo their own share of suffering in the world, and that I do not have to die several times a day.

Life is a learning Journey and anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.
