Sometimes, you have to come up to a certain decision and you have to stand by it. Every decision we make in our life has its own consequences and we should be responsible for it. One wrong decision would make you regret for a lifetime and there’s no turning back when you already made that decision. There are many possibilities but you only have to choose one. It would be easier if you’ll follow what your heart says, but it doesn’t mean that what your heart says is already right. There are certain things we have to consider. Wrong decisions only remain so if you do not do a thing to remedy them. Thus, when arriving to a certain decision, you have to balance your power and responsibilities well.
I’m in my Senior year now this June and hopefully, I would be able to make it. I am happy with friends that I have right now. I am in a place where there are funny people with funny happenings. There are also funny things which you can’t explain why they are there. I am happy with these people. Time will come wherein things won’t be the same again. When that time comes, you should be ready for anything.
There are realizations I had when it comes to decisions:
First, whether the decisions you’ve made are right or wrong, you’ve already done it. It’s up to you to make the most out of it. The regrets won’t make any sense. It’s like deciding to move away from a certain point to another point for improvements. However, because of the first step, you’ve lost the efficient point, you’re stuck. You did not take the succeeding steps to reach to the other point. That’s the worst thing that can happen – to be forever stuck there. So, when you’re already done having a self-pity and guilt-trip, take one step at a time to reach to the other point. When you’re already there, that’s the time to look back. Then, you can say, you made the right choice. Do not evaluate the decisions you’ve made when it is not yet gone into completion.
Second, you can’t please everyone. Not everyone would be in favor with every decision you make. Let it be. They are not in your position and they can never understand you. The ship only sinks if it lets the water seep in. Take the constructive criticisms, learn from the bad ones, but do not let such bad criticisms become your downfall.
Third, at the end of the day, what matters is how you see yourself, and how God sees you. Work on these two to turn them into positive ones. Strive to like yourself and only strive to please God. let go of the rest. You do not need them.
Next, what’s life without the ability to make silly choices? What’s the sense of living if all the things you’ve done is perfect? Mistakes would always make us wiser and a better person. We just have to make that conscious effort to learn from them and move on.
Lastly, you can do it, by God’s grace and guidance, you can. He lets such things happen because He wants to teach us a vital lesson. And if there’s any perfect opportunity to talk to Him, and to listen to what He has to say, this is it.
