One Decision, Two Decision

We all have it, that feeling in the bottom of our stomach that aches when we know something is not right. Sometimes or some of us can feel it sooner than others. If you get the feeling, do not ever ignore it! Nine out of ten times you will be right, I would say ten out of ten but there is always that margin for error.

Twice now, I have ignored my feeling. The deep aching feeling in the pit of my stomach; thinking maybe it was the margin for error. Twice now, someone in my life has made a decision where in their first decision which did not go so well; feelings and emotions were then experienced by their outcome. Feelings of sadness, anger, heartache, regret and silence. Now fast forward several months later, the same decision is being made again due to their circumstances.

I sit here and think what went wrong. Why did their circumstances not change? Well, as the saying goes you can only lead the horse to water but you cannot make the horse drink. Yes, this is absolutely true but also there are those cases when the horse may need some help when the horse cannot figure out that the water is right in front of him. Also, I have written a couple of time history repeats itself and it does sometimes sooner than later. So on that note, knowing what we all just went through, I am hoping that we will not see the same issues arise but I am not holding my breath. Only because I know why the decision is being made to begin with for that matter both decisions and because of that history will repeat itself. There will be the time to see the past raw emotions again; the watching, listening and hearing of sadness, heartache, anger, regret and silence. I do hope I am wrong because it was not an enjoyable experience the first time around as well a heavy burden to carry.

Why I am writing about it? Two reasons, being human I need to have an outlet, there always comes a point where your need to make sure you are re-grouping. Second maybe if one person reads this and rethinks about making the same decision on something or possible to find another way. It was all worth it. Things are hard in life, things are scary but always remember to communicate with your family, your close friends or someone who you are close too. You may not like what they have to say at times and you do not have to agree but sometimes it is a different perspective on your situation. You may find that it what you needed. In return, not communicating or holding back information always comes back to bit you where it hurts. Being honest upfront is so much easier in the beginning than back peddling in the end. GOD BLESS

"Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come." - Robert H. Schuller
