in life, we were given options where to go and what to do. but sometimes having one is not that easy depending on the situation as of the moment we are facing. we need to sacrifice our happiness to make others happy or such beliefs that option is the best thing to grab and to follow because in it our real happiness will be obtained in the ripening of time. well, do you have some instance you experienced that you felt hardship in taking an option ever in your life? share it here and tell it kindly, what kind of story was that. thanks

hello, life is hard. sometimes we have to face difficult situations and it becomes very much difficult for us at that time to make good decision. we often question ourselves whether we are right or wrong. it happens. it happens with everyone. this is life and we have to deal with it. we have to be sure of all the choices we make from all the given options. thats the way we move ahead in life. and thats how everyone should deal with life. we should not be scared to make difficult choices. otherwise we will be defeated by life.

hello there.. yes, very hard indeed. because sometimes, we need to ignore our heart and mind to choose the right path. there are lots of consequences we need to consider if we want to succeed in life and to choose the best thing for us. sometimes too, those empty decisions we had were our happiness in life as it entangled there but bound to failures. and those too risky option but have foreseen to have a good output at the end and needs our little sacrifice at the beginning of its implementation to keep the good things rolling to be reaped in the end of the task-making. yes, life is hard. but God is there always to pacify us. happiness for you there and thanks for sharing your point of views in here.. :) thanks

hello there... yes right at that. sometimes we do not consider the feelings of others that is why unknowingly, we already hurt them and take them for granted.

I am at a stage in my life where I am having to think about all of the things that I want in my life and how I am going to be able to get them. I have just got a degree, and I knew that the subject that I had chosen was never going to be the easiest one. However, I always knew that it was going to be the best one for my future because it had better options at the end of it. I did it, and I now have a degree. I am happy that I did it, and this has been proven that the easiest option isn't always the one that is going to be the best one for you at the time.

The majority of us pursue a life without too many wrong decisions,correct decision in every time is always the demand of ourselves.But the truth is,noone succeed in it.To be honest,making decisions confuses me a lot especially when there are many things to deal with.Influenced by the perfectionism,i spend time thingking which option are better again and again,and hesitate to decide,so it makes the situation just even worse.Maybe i should simplify my mind,just follow my heart regardless of the results.

being perfect is not my guide in making a decision but it is the happiness itself. oh well, there would be instances but i guess, myself had that before. it is hard to obtain perfection because nothing and no one is perfect or yet, there is in its own form and characteristics but we people do not recognized because always we are not contented. that we are always looking for much better things that is why we cannot appreciate what we have in our substandard and in our presence. well, as i said that there is hardships in choosing because sometimes in options happiness is entailed but from thus, it can make others hurt their feelings and whatsoever alike story told by us. very elaborative because life is always at stake. so thanks for joining here :)

I have experienced it when I had my baby. I wanted to take care of him and be with him 24/7 but apparently, I need to go back to work. I need to help my husband to be able to pay our house. It breaks my heart to leave my son everyday and then there's this one incident that crashed my heart. My son got into a burn accident and that forever I blame my self if there's something really and happened to him. But God is really good, He always guide us so He don't let my son suffered much. That for me is a wake up call but again, if I don't work, that will be a much worst situation. Luckily, we got a very good nanny and she loves my son dearly. Now, I am still working but I'm already exploring ways so I could just work at home. I have an online shop and blogging all at the same time. I always believe that god has a better plan. I trust him 101%.

ah for that, it is really understandable why we need to choose to work and leave the baby for the moment. that instance would be right thing to do because all of the hardships and sacrifices are intended for the family and for the future of the baby. the baby would surely understand that... thanks for joining in here :)

Many times I made a decision wrong for an options that might not clear to me at the beginning. We should think many times when we are having a difficult times to decide and the option you will not turn yourself into regrets after all. If your option is to make others happy and sacrifices your happiness, will it's your choice and you are appreciated by other if you did that for them.

Yes, you are absolutely right. Sometimes it is really very very hard to take some decision. Because we stay in dilema. In some situation when we want to take any decision that time our mind says something and our heart says something. And we get confused that to whom we should listen. Our heart or our mind..

it is really hard to make a decision, more if your are happy to an other choice but this choice will make you suffer at the end. so you need to sacrifice to obtain glory after. but how to deal with it when doing it would really break your heart. i guess, you need to be patient and have faith in God that He is the best in-charge of everything in life. thanks for joining here :)

There are a lot of choices in life that we have to make and some of them is an inconvenience to us and "cramps our style" so to speak, but it's the right thing to do. We would be happier doing what we want to do, but sometimes we have to put our life on the back burner to be there for someone else. My husband has three sisters(all in their 70's) and all three of them have lost their husbands. One of them lives with a handicapped brother(late sixties) and the other two live alone and are afraid to stay by themselves at night. My husband stays with one sister at night. He's with me in the day time, but he is never home at night. He thought I would object, but I understand. I had to stay with my sister for three months while her husband was in the hospital. She was with him and I stayed at her house with her kids. All we can do is make the best choice in life that we can and no matter what choice we make try to let it be the most logical choice and the best for all concerned. We all would like to be selfish, but it's the unselfish things we do that defines who we truly are. Life ain't easy, and we have to take the bad with the good. Good luck.

yes you are right at that. making decisions and putting it all to actions would be so hard. like what you did, it is entailed with sacrifices and setting aside what we must feel for the benefits of others. well, we do believed in right actions and good things considerately that those leaped were good for us like being considerate. thanks for joining in here :)
