I realize how important it is to think about how what you’re doing feels. It’s easy to rationalize anything and to oversimplify everything. It’s not so easy to have expectation, however. Personally, I don’t follow any particular religion. I believe that we are all accountable for our own actions and that we basically should do good for ourselves and those around us.
When you feel like something you’re doing is bad, it is. when it feels good, even if to someone else it might feel bad, you’re doing something right. It’s probably just not right for them. You’re the only one that knows what’s truly best for you, by way of how you feel.
Often times we face big decisions that are so intermingled between what we should do, what we think we should do, what our families think we should do. Even what society thinks we should do. Sometimes when we do those things that we think will make people around us happy, we feel worse and it doesn’t benefit anyone in the long run. It’s important to accept that you can only focus on who you are and where you’re going. Everyone else, including children, are on their own journey.
