Doing the right thing is not always easy. In fact, sometimes it is the most painful decision you will ever have to make.
There will be times when the right thing feels wrong. So wrong that it causes you pain to the point where you’d give just about anything to go back and choose another path.
There are times when the right thing will keep you up at night questioning everything; who you are, what your life has become and whether or not you made a terrible mistake.
But never doubt that it was the right thing to do. You made that decision based on your ethics and moral compass and the reason it hurts so much is because you probably had somebody else’s best interests at heart and not your own.
Remember, you’re a good person and you do what needs to be done. And though it may come at a great personal cost to you – the cost of doing the wrong thing would have been far greater because the shame of it would have hurt you just as much and would have most likely have hurt others in the process.
