Crossroads

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/jeopardize/

Sometimes the things that appear the most simple, are the most difficult. You do it, and the outcome is horrendous, just the same as if you didn’t do it. What do you do? How can you choose the right path?

We all do it from time to time. Humans inevitably hit that hard decision, and more often than they care to admit. What is it? You’re there, facing the world and you have to pick. Do you choose to visit your relative, knowing they have very little time left? Or do you go out for the evening for something you have planned months ago, with many people? That’s the crossroads, it’s impossible to avoid these. You needn’t jeopardize though, you have a choice, a moral code within you to do the right thing. There is no reason to say, It’s okay I’ll visit another day. Because that ‘other day’, most likely won’t come and you will be left distraught and in guilt that you didn’t go. That simple dilemma can be resolved, it’s down to you to do the right thing.

A man comes in to hospital, with a heart attack. Doctors think it’s best to use an anesthetic, then go in and unblock an artery. However the patient has a history of allergic reaction to the medicine.So what does the doctor do? They can’t unclog it without opening his chest. Which can’t be done unless he is asleep. The doctor is about to put the patients life in jeopardy, in order to save him. Despite the risks being high, sometimes a decision is needed, and sometimes that decision doesn’t make sense but there is no choice as all other options have been considered. The patient might lose his life, but as I have said before, you need to be confident in your decisions, and never turn back. If he survives, then you will strengthen those neurons and make yourself a better person.

What is your compromise? Is it the choice between a prostitute and your girlfriend? Risking an STD, and endangering your life because you didn’t make a moral judgement. Make the right choice, use the light within yourself to bring about the right path, and follow it.

  1. This is great advice. I heard something similar once and lived by it for about 2-3 months. It was probably the happiest time of my life. Unfortunately, I relapsed into choosing the easy paths too often. I need get back to the hard choice way of life.
