Over the last year or so, I’ve been involved in a conflict I’ve been trying to avoid for about 7 years or so.
I haven’t been avoiding it because I fear conflict. Far from it.
It came from having faith that things would work out the way they’re supposed to.
Now, when I say the way they’re supposed to, I don’t necessarily mean the way I want them to. Granted, I firmly believe that the way they’re supposed to is not far off from what I want to happen, but that’s beside the point.
This current conflict is unnecessary and need not have gone this way. But it is what it is.
I find myself daily reminding my self that doing the right thing, even when people think it’s wrong, is always the best course of action.
Doing the right thing is simple in theory but undeniably more difficult in practise.
When you live life this way, there are bound to be setbacks. Setbacks that can easily derail a person. But you can’t simply prevent a derailment.
You’re not weak if you allow yourself to leave the tracks. Of course, it’s vital that you get back on track but not before you make sure you’re still headed in the right direction.
