3. Sometimes, you have to sacrifice everything for the well-being of someone you care about.
4. Even though they don't always show it, the people who really care about you are the ones who stand by your side no matter what you do, and are always there to get you through your mistakes. Sometimes, too, they are the ones who look up to you, and follow you--not with blind eyes, but with trusting hearts.
5. Sometimes, dreams are not meant to be attained, but they are still meant to be strived for.
