Life would be so much easier if we didn’t have to make decisions all the time, right? Unfortunately, we can’t. According to studies, “a typical adult makes 27 judgments a day and 773,618 decisions over a lifetime”. Some are easy to make, others seem to be impossible — but they’re not. When you decide on something and have the will to carry on with your choice, life gets a lot easier. No matter how hard it was to decide. How many times have you thought there was no way out? When you fully accept your decisions, your choices and move on with your life, you will see there is no coming back to the dark place you were before. Of course we make a good amount of bad decisions — everyone does. That’s when life gives us the famous “second chance”, so we can learn from our mistakes and make better decisions for the future. Don’t blame yourself too much for the bad things you’ve done — these are the things that will teach you the most. Also, try to respect other people’s decisions, it’s their lives they are trying to rebuild.
What would you say if you could write one last letter to the dead — a dead person you loved very much? Would you waste your last chance with sorrow or would you use this opportunity to say how much you love them and how much you appreciate everything they’ve done? Would you ask for forgiveness? Or would you let them know you’ve truly forgiven them? Now let me ask you a few more questions. What if the dead person was you? Would you be so kind and thankful towards yourself? Most importantly, would you forgive yourself for all the bad things you’ve done? Life and death walk side by side, we never really know when our last chance to redemption will be — so why not start today? People make mistakes all the time, we are only human. What makes the difference is changing what we will do in the future. If you’ve done something wrong, ask for forgiveness. If you’ve had an argument with someone you love (significant other, family, friends, etc), tell them you’re sorry. It might sound a little morbid, but pretend you are all going to die tomorrow. Don’t go to bed with regret — this is the worst thing in the world. Don’t wait to fix things up later — fix it now! Change everything you can in order to be happy. If you know you’re doing something that will hurt someone else, stop it. Find the will to surpass your ego — there’s nothing wrong in asking for forgiveness and admitting you were wrong. Don’t be the one responsible for someone else’s sadness. Never hurt the people you love. You never know when their last day alive will be — or yours.
