There will come a time in your life where a decision has to be made. It might be socially accepted or otherwise. However, the most important thing after making the decision is to accept full responsibility for it, regardless of the outcome. Often times, we avoid making the tough decisions because we are afraid of what might come of it. If anyone can forsee all the outcomes of their decisions, I guess the world will not be an interesting place to be in. And life will cease to exist.
Life is not always rosy and pink. Accept that and make the best of it. Do not let that hinder you from making the decisions that you can live with.
