Have you ever asked yourself if your choice is supporting the life you desire? We occasionally make decisions that we later come to regret. Do you ever wonder if you chose the other path, you would not be in that position in your life, whether happy or sad? You have different possibilities: you can either do something good or something bad.
We sometimes make decisions without considering the consequences. It is a time when critical thinking is required. Not in the sense that you must think critically before making every decision, but you must think before making any decisions. Not everything can turn out well, especially when it comes to something important. Because of my lack of critical thinking, I always end up regretting decisions in my life. I did not think before making a decision because I am more mature now than when I was younger and made reckless decisions.
I came across this question on the internet, specifically on Facebook. I'd like to respond to this and share it here because I have a lot of time today while watching Vincenzo; did you watch this series? It's a good Kdrama series that you should watch as well.
At times, I believe that I have chosen something that is beneficial to me right now, but there are times when I regret my decision. I regret not attending college and continuing my education, but I also do not regret moving to the city to work for myself. The life I desire is to have a small business that will support me in my daily expenses. My decision to not attend college is entirely my own, and while I have the desire to do so, I have chosen not to do so.
When I graduated from Senior High School in April 2019, my friends and I decided to spend the night at a friend's house and go swimming the next day. I told my sister and mother about it, but only my mother agreed. Because I am living with my sister at the time, her decision is also required. My mother is working in Manila at the time. I told them nicely about our sleepover, and I recall our previous conversation with my sister about how I could go to a sleepover when I finished senior high that time, so I am confident that they will let me go out that time.
My sister refused to let me go, but I persisted because I believed my mother's decision was valid, so I could go. That was one of the most unforgettable nights and days of my life. My friends and I are both overjoyed. People are correct when they say that when you are overjoyed, something unexpected will happen, and this is not desirable. Even though my sister is messaging me and saying hurtful things to me that night, she does not expect me to ignore her and decline to follow her. When I got home, I noticed my belongings in the sack. Yes, it's in the sack. Everything I had on that house, and when I chatted with her, she told me to leave her house. As a result, I did.
I have the option of not leaving the house and apologizing to her, but my pride refuses. I respond to her and tell her nasty things as well. We fought over the text, and it was our first fight because I am not the type of person who disrespects my older siblings, but I did that time.
Even when I tell myself that I don't have a choice where to go in the city, I remember that in the past, I did. I just have a lot of pride and don't know how to be gracious in defeat. My graduation was on April 5, and our sleepover was on April 7 and 8. I return home on April 8th and leave the house at the same time. I slept at a friend's house while planning a trip to the city. I moved to the city on April 12 and found work there.
We make decisions in life that either make us unlucky or fortunate. Please be certain in your decisions in life because regret is always at the end. We should always consider the consequences of our decisions before making them. I know it's easy to say "think before you decide," and I believe in the adage "don't make decisions when you're happy or sad because those emotions are fleeting and you may come to regret it the next day or time."
