zaadz qar: what are the top three most important things you’ve learned?

1. i am responsible for my own happiness and getting my own needs met. i am not responsible for anyone else, nor is anyone else responsible for me. a cheesy quote i like: ‘if it is to be, it is up to me.’ or, lyrics from over the rhine: ‘i’m happy with myself and i don’t have what it takes to please you.’

2. nothing is permanent. good times don’t last forever, but neither do the bad.

3. nothing is free. everything costs, whether with time, money, emotional energy, blood, sweat, and tears, or your life.

this post is a response to zaadz’s ‘questions and reflections’ for april 4, 2007.
