Life is all about choices.
Some things don’t just happen. It’s a cumulative result of our actions, a result of free will. We will definitely mess up and pick the wrong decision. Not all of our choices will be right, and there will be situations where we have to choose right and make it better.
Our actions, words, and decisions will have an equal reaction. Being good doesn’t guarantee you will be treated the same, but stay good anyway.
We can’t value people because they are worth it, but we value them because of love. But don’t let that goodness in you be abused, let your goodness radiate love and kindness. Love begets love they say, but love is giving, without expecting anything in return.
Editor’s Notes: Choices is an encouraging short essay by the newcomer but equally talented Sharri Shen. Look forward to more entries from her this July for the theme Breaking Boundaries, only here at The Ugly Writers.
