When you’re about to reveal something that you know will disappoint people, you don’t say it immediately. You spend days (even weeks) thinking of the right words to say. Words that will make the revelation sting less and will spare them from all the pain that you’re about to cause them. At least that’s what you’re praying for.
But no matter how hard you try, you can’t really protect people’s feelings. Especially if you’re trying to protect them from something you did. The best you can do is tell them the truth directly, take everything they lash onto you, and accept the cruel consequences that will arise from whatever you did.
Of course it ain’t easy. Breaking people’s hearts is never easy. What you think is right for you is often hurtful towards others. At the end of the day, though, it’s still your life and it’s you alone that would feel all the unhappiness that’s about to come. But of course things aren’t always one sided. For every hurt, there’s always a blessing on the flip side.
And I’m definitely sure that this situation I’m in right now will make me happy in the long run. Without a doubt. Tiis tiis lang muna.
