Why is it so hard?

Why is it so hard to do what is right for yourself?

Sometimes, you have to be selfish and make the decision that is best for you, even if it hurts other people.

I had to make a decision like that recently & it was weighing me down for weeks.  I did everything I could to actually avoid making the decision. I was intensely worried about how my decision would hurt the person in question & how it would impact my relationships with other people.  After talking it over with friends and getting different views on the situation, I knew I was doing what was right for me.

The thing is, meeting new people & making friends is difficult. Even when you find people that have common interests, sometimes you just don’t click.


I’m sorry that I hurt someone.  It was not my intention.

When it comes down to it, I know I made the decision that was right for me.


I just hope that all the people involved can be mature about the situation and avoid mud slinging & name calling.

When it comes down to it, I know that the people who are my true friends will stand by me and understand, and that those that don’t were likely not true friends to begin with.
