hi goldenplanet I think its when you have a disagreement with someone and you both try very hard to work things out between you but one or the other of you still cannot come to an agreement or a compromise. Then is the time to just let the whole thing be. I know its very frustrating t o just leave the thing d angling but sometimes that is the only true answer.I have found out here in mylot you may stand up for what you believe is right, but if you cannot convince many one of your friends that it is right it best to let it be.some arguments are actually quite petty and if both people just back up , shake hands and agree to disagree this will be the best route to take.To me a good friendship is more valuable then being miffed because my friend disagreed wi th my ideas."Speaking words of wisdom, Mother Mary said let it be, let it be" this really is so true.

It depends on the importance of the issue. If it is something that will have a huge impact on my or my families lives, I'll take more time and think it through. I may even make a list of pros and cons. When I have thought out the different possiblilities, I'll decide and move forward. If it is nonconsequential, I'll decide quickly and not look back :)

Normally I think things through before I make a final decision. If it was a wrong decision then at least I know in my mind that I thought it through and felt it was the right decision at the time. I must say that although the result may not be favorable I will backtrack and think of what went wrong in my thinking process so that I do not repeat the same process. Might sound like a lot of thinking but it is the best way for me to be content with my decisions. Which later I foresee happier thoughts because life is like a cycle and similar circumstances arise which lead me to not think so much, which leads me to not having to think about any longer because once a decision is made I cannot change it but more so change my future ways. Therefore to sum, is that I really think things through and whichever are the end results I am super content that I did my best to begin with, right or wrongfully.

I would stop thinking about something and let it be when I've tried my hardest to make things work. After you try your best and nothing seems to change, you just stop thinking, or at least try, and let things the way they are. If things don't change it's for a reason.

I think it all depends on what the situation is. If someone is wrong in something and if it's going to hurt someone else then we need to take a stand. However, if they're wrong and nobody's going to be hurt then let it be. There's no need to make a big issue over something small. On the other hand, when one is right, support them however, if one is wrong, let it be known because I'm one to stand up for right and stand down for wrong. No changing my mind in that.
