1)you cannot force love,love is something that comes from the heart,if you try to force it on someone you will end up getting hurt.
2)Always try to fight for what you believe in,ever if it means you loosing your life try to make it work for you no matter what.
3)Always forgive people that hurt or wrong you not matter what he or she did to you, when they apologies try and let your anger go so that God our father will forgive you for your own sins.
4)don’t judge people because of their attitude instead try to look for the good in them.
5)Don’t try to change what God has ordina for someone because God spoken words cannot be unspoken, so be wish not to fight against God wishes for someone.
6)don’t get jealous over the happiness of someone even if you are hurt with it try not to get affected by it because jealousy can drive you to do the unthinkable which in return can destroy your own future.
This is all I can point out,if you readers have also learn something from the story you should can point it out.
I hope this story teaches us something and we should try and work on whatever we have learned,let’s us please be wise…..
