You Decide

HonestyWhen you find yourself in a situation where you have to decide what happens next, you must be completely honest with everyone concerned, including yourself. When that decision is possibly not what others expect or want, you must show a lot of compassion when you announce it.

Of course you can hurt others if when your decision is contrary to theirs, but you will hurt them more by delaying or by going along with them, just to go with the flow. Eventually, your feelings will show and the result will only be more angst for all.

We all have a responsibility for the decisions we make in life. As we know, karma is the collection of causes and effects that our decisions amass. So when you feel that you have to make a decision that will be difficult for others to accept, make it quickly, announce it gently but firmly, and reduce the pain, to you and those affected, to the minimum.
