Hard decisions to be made
EJ said, "You’re too soft";
There’s truth to that.
Always looking for the easy road can make you soft
Sometimes it’s better to take the road less traveled
and take your licks
Sometimes there is only one path
and the choice to not take it
makes you soft
I believe this is my case.
The habit of choosing not to choose
has made me averse to making hard decisions
and has made me soft.
Not choosing to choose can atrophy your mind
Thus it is better to choose the unsavory
and its consequences
than to allow the consequences of the unsavory
simply happen to you
leaving you unprepared and distraught.
Lessons cannot be learned by choosing not to choose.
I have come to the conclusion that choosing not to decide
is strategic, not tactical.
I have allowed myself to be acted upon
instead of acting upon situations
Being reactive is not always a good thing.
I used to believe
that we could all "just get along"
I don’t believe that anymore
It can’t be true
Some things simply cannot co-exist
Some people simply cannot be together
Not everyone can be friends with one another
The concept that we can’t all be friends
was anathema to me
but the truth is now made painfully and plainly clear to me
Now that the concept is taught
Now that sense has been made
The time for hard decisions has arrived–
Where do I go from here
What will I do
