Did we make the right decision? I don’t think they could have made a wrong decision, and I wanted them to know this. They had someone on their side, no matter what.
I came upon these words of wisdom from an article that I read. It was about a family that took their daughter off of life support, and they asked their genetic counselor the question of making the right decision. His response to the question applies not only to his field of work but also to our lives as well.
Many times, we question if what we’re doing is the right thing to do. The world is not a black and white place; there’s a lot of grey area to it. One of my friends jokingly calls me a George Washington because I stand neutral on the things that he asks. It’s because I like to weigh out all of my options before making my decision. Generally, I can argue for both sides. There’s always going to be a pro and con in a grey world.
Sometimes, there’s not a right or best decision. It’s just the choice that will be best for the future. No matter the decision, there’s going to be someone on both sides to validate their stance.
