I just had an epiphany. A couple of days ago, a person who shall remain nameless (and who does not read this blog) made a decision that negatively impacted me and I have felt really hurt by it. But I just realized, mere moments ago, that it is okay. That person made a decision based on what they think is best for them and their life. I make decisions all the time based on what I think is best for me and my life. I can't fault someone else for their decisions, even the hurtful ones, any more than I want to potentially be faulted for the decisions I make. If I want complete freedom to choose for myself (that which I can actually control in my life), I have to give others that same freedom, even if it makes me feel bad. I can't expect others to choose the way I want them to any more than I want someone else making my choices for me. Am I rambling? I think so.
On an unrelated yet ironic note, I notice that just since last night someone has "unfollowed" my blog. And that's okay. Just as I would want the option of unfollowing a blog that was no longer filling a need it did at one point, so also do each of you have the option of unfollowing blogs...It's your decision, and that's okay.
