It always is interesting when someone utter the words “I didn’t have a choice” and actually sounded utterly sincere. The truth of the matter is that you always have a choice. And arriving to the space where you have to utter the aforementioned phrase, meant that you made a choice. This is not about whether you made the right or wrong one. Often people make choices as best as they could to the best of his/her knowledge at that particular given time and space. So embrace the fact that you chose one over the other and deal with whatever consequences that come with it. If not for the other person that you have ‘wronged’, at least for your own pitiful sake.
