I Believe

I found this in the bulletin of the church I am now attending and thought that it was something that was worth sharing Enjoy!

Fr. Joseph’s Corner…

by Fr. Joseph


I believe – That just because two people argue, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. And just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do.

I believe – That we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I believe – That no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while, and you must forgive them for that.

I believe – That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. The same goes for true love.

I believe – That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I believe – That it is taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I believe – That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I believe – That you can keep going long after you think you can’t.

I believe – That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I believe – That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I believe – That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I believe – That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I believe – That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down will be the ones to help you get back up.

I believe – That sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.

I believe – That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.

I believe – That it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I believe – That no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn’t stop for your grief.

I believe – That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I believe – Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I believe – That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you.

I believe – That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

I believe – That credentials on the wall do make you a decent human being.

I believe – That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

I believe – The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything – they just make the best of everything they have.

I believe – That our life is very simple, but we make it very complicated.

I believe – That most of the reasons for our unhappiness are due to our irrational thinking and negative self-talks.

I believe – That if we walk toward God, He will come running toward us with His outstretched arms to embrace us.

I believe – That God can never stop loving us – it is we who stop loving God.
