Choices


Choices. Life is full of them. Big one's, little one's, one's that could change your life forever. Yes or no. Up or down. In or out. To love or hate. To fight of give in. To live or die. We all come to a cross road. Two choices, one possible outcome. Which road? And what if we make the wrong choice? So many what if's. People can tell you what they think you should do, but in the end, it's your choice. You decide. When you were little, your parents made every choice for you. What you should wear on sundays, what you were going to eat, who was going to come and you were going to play with. But as you get older, people expect you to make your own choices, and the choices get harder. We are suddenly responsible for our own future, and that's a scary idea. Sometimes we don't even know what the right choice is. And sometimes, the lines are so blurred we can't even tell if we're making the right choice. Choices mean that everything could change. and I don't 'do' change. Change is scary. Change means you are leaving behind what you know and are venturing out into a new world. Choices mean change, and change means scary. In short form, that means Choices are scary. Choices mean new. New means leaving what we have, stepping out and believing that, maybe, things will be better on the other side. Choices can change everything. And there's always the thought 'what if I make the wrong choice.' and that's scary. Having your future, your life, in your hands and knowing that whatever you choose is going to affect it. It's a big responsibility. And somewhere along the line, all those choices fall on you. no one's going to make these choices for you. You're growing up. You are forced to make your own choices, and things will change. You're not in that safe place anymore. You are coming out on your own. You are on your own. It's your life, your future, your game. YOURS. Choices mean change and change means scary. It's good to be scared. It means you have something to lose. Here's the thing. Sometimes, change is good. Sometimes those choices you make that change everything are necessary for taking a step forward. So make that choice. Yes, everything could change. Yes, you could make the wrong choice. Yes, that is scary. But would you rather stay where you are, forever? Choices are necessary to help us grow. They change us. You grew up and you are in charge, of your life, of your future. It's your choice. Which road you take is up to you. It's up to you. You are on your own. So be on your own. Make this choice and welcome the change it brings. One choice. Two options. One result. You have to pick one. Yes or no. Up or down. In or out. To love or hate. To fight or give in. To live or die.

You don't know how much I've lived this over the past month. And it's as true as true.
