We make all kinds of choices from one minute to the next, hour by hour and day by day. Some of those choices are easy while others are heart-wrenchingly difficult – should I end this relationship; accept this job; relocate to this new city; etc.
What most of us seem to struggle with is the acceptance of the consequences of those decisions made and the impact that they may have, not only on others but on ourselves.
What must be understood is that maturity and wisdom can be derived from the results (good or bad) of every choice that is made.
