Tweet This could all be hypothetical, or it could be a reflection of someone's, including mine, reality; however, I will not make a distinction between the two for the sake of this post.
I have come to the conclusion that really hard decisions aren't the ones where you have a choice between right or wrong, hard or easy, or yes or no. The hardest decisions are those with no substantial gain as a result of the decision - basically, when you're faced with a tough decision and both choices will lead to a consequence, causing you to choose not between entrapment or escape of the consequence but between which of the two evils will present less consequence. I call this the "robbing Peter to pay Paul" situation.
Case in point: You have feelings for someone who doesn't have the slightest clue. There is no right or wrong; you can tell the person and risk the awkwardness or you can not tell them and let a potential opportunity pass.
Case in point: You cheat on your boyfriend/girlfriend. By telling the person you hurt them, by not telling them you hurt them, so you choose the lesser of the two evils, specific to your own relationship.
Case in point: You're in college and you support yourself by working a full-time job. You have a test and need to study but you also have to work just to get by. Ideally, you would be able to juggle everything and study ahead, but life always happens and things don't work that way every time. What do you do?
The point of all this is, adult decisions suck but they are a major part of growing up. So stop complaining!
