“Every time I’ve done something that doesn’t feel right, it’s ended up not being right.” – Mario Cuomo

YOU KNOW WHAT this quote is talking about, right?

There’s this thing you want to do. Like maybe get revenge on someone that’s hurt you or a loved one. Or maybe it’s not so black and white and if you just leak certain information about your competition, you’ll get the promotion or the contract or whatever. Yet even though you want to do it, you know it would be wrong.

Or maybe there’s something you really want, something you’re secretly obsessing about, but having it would mean someone else might get hurt or miss out in some way. And you know it’s not right but you struggle with it because you really want it. You tell yourself if you don’t get it, you will regret it for the rest of your life. And up until you finally decide, it could go either way.

It can be tough, but here’s what I’ve learned.

Whenever I’ve heeded the feeling that something wasn’t right, I have not regretted it. Whenever I’ve ignored the feeling, it’s always ended up not being right.
