Leaving high school, the most valuable thing I will take with me is the memories and I want to thank every person for playing a part in them, to my friends, youu have gone beyond the limits of what one has to do for another, my life will be forever richer and more beautiful because you were a part of it, I love you with all my heart, to those who were my slap in the face, to the close-minded or misunderstanding, to those who broke my heart, you all changed me to become the person I wanted to be, I am stronger because of the trials you have put my through and no matter what you have done to me, you have unknowingly done so much for me, to every person who inspired me by the way they lived their life, to those who were my shoulder to cry on, to those I found myself with in my moments of pure joy, to those who have understood me, to the people I share inside jokes with, to anyone who has held my hand, or for that matter, held my hair back after a night of partying, to those I laughed with until I cried, to my crushes, to everyone I stayed up talking to until the early morning hours, thank you for the wisdom, happiness, and experience you've brought into my life, I will cherish these times forever, I wish you all the best.
Life isn't about keeping score. It's not about how many people call you and it's not about who you've dated, are dating, or haven't dated at all. It isn't about who you've kissed, what sport you play, or which guy or girl likes you. It's not about your shoes or your hair or the color of your skin or where you live or go to school. In fact, it's not about grades, money, clothes, or colleges that accept you or not. Life isn't about if you have lots of friends, or if you are alone, and it's not about how accepted or unaccepted you are. Life just isn't about that. But life is about who you love and who you hurt. It's about how you feel about yourself. It's about trust, happiness, and compassion. Life is about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance, and building confidence. It's about what you say and what you mean. It's about seeing people for who they are and not what they have. Most of all, it is about choosing to use your life to touch someone else's in a way that could never have been achieved otherwise. These choices are what life's about.
