that’s life though, right?

This post is going to be super cliché, but I need to get some things off my chest.

Life is a bitch sometimes.

I know we’ve all heard it far too many times but life really does come to those fork-in-the-road moments, and it forces us to choose right or left. Life or death, or so it feels. Life can change in an instant, without us seeing it coming, without us even wanting it to.

That’s life though, right?

A series of choices. It’s about facing those forks head on and going down the road you believe is best for YOU.

We — or most of us anyway — choose to live a life full of good intentions. Do right by others. Treat others how we wish to be treated. But sometimes what’s best for US isn’t always what’s best for OTHERS. Sometimes what’s going to be great for ME is going to suck for YOU.

That’s life though, right?

If we choose to do what’s best for us, it doesn’t mean we don’t care. It doesn’t mean we’re any less of a good person. We are simply looking out for ourselves, because a wise man once told me if you don’t look out for yourself no one else will, which I strongly believe to be true.

Roads are meant to be crossed, life is meant to be lived and choices are meant to be chosen. Sometimes they’re going to be hard. Sometimes they’re really going to suck.

That’s life though, right?

I choose to be a person that does right by others. I choose to be a person that does right by me, too. Mistakes will be made, and that’s OK.

I’m learning that that’s life.
