Decisions

Life is full of  decisions. Heck everything a person does is a decision. Though some are bigger than other it is how we treat our decisions that make us who we are. It is how we learn and grow as humans. We learn from trial and error by seeing what worked and what did not work for us and our surroundings. A lot of the time though these decisions are not easy. The human is afraid for the most part of hurting others. Society has taught us that hurting others is a bad thing, which I believe is true. There is also the aspect though that when it comes down to it, it is your life and your well being. If you are being hurt by the decision you make, why are you making it?

Earlier I asked the question of why do I continue to want something that is only going to hurt me. Why would I continue to pursue something that will most likely end badly? Why do I want to see myself get hurt? If this thing hurt so much what point was there of holding onto it? The answer is I should not. If something is not treating you well why would you still want it? You might believe it is truly the only way to happiness but the reality is sometimes it is not. If things are meant to be they will happen, but why hurt yourself because you are afraid of going back to the beginning. Sometimes you have to hit restart. A person can run into a wall all they want but the truth is that it will not fall down. It will stand there as sturdy as it was before. The person on the other hand, will be tired emotionally and physically. It hurts not knowing what could have possible been behind the wall, but why face unnecessary pain for just a hope for something when there are plenty of other treasures to find. Treasures that require no pain to get them. It might not seem like it at the time, but I promise you there is. A person has to make the decision to move on to help themselves. They will have the wanting to go back and try again, but if they have given it all they could the first time, why would it work the second? It might be scary to have to face the process of starting all over again but it sure beats the pain, and besides the experience will only make you wiser for the next time.
