Have you ever sat with someone and they took part in something in their lives that was so morally wrong according to your values ?
I experienced this over a year ago when someone asked me to support them through a medical procedure that I felt so incredibly powerless in .
I was torn between being her support person and wanting to save a little life .
I've sat with this grief for over a year and the reason I'm sharing this is that sometimes you have to take responsibility for your own role in a life changing event ...but sometimes you also have to place responsibility where it is due .
One of the things I've learnt in my life is to never engage in anything that goes against your values . Always place yourself and your integrity beyond anything else because at the end of the day we have to look at ourselves in the mirror and make peace with our choices .
Someone once said to me ... I'm disappointed because we are friends and you 'should ' be supporting my choices . I beg to differ .
I have come to a point in my life where I know who I am and going against my beliefs will not only be detrimental to my self esteem but also health. I encourage you to respect yourself and your values . This doesn't mean you are in judgment of someone else's choices but more so that you stay authentic to you ❤
