Have you ever had a time in your life where you just go “Man. Knew I shouldn’t have done that.” Well I’m here to tell you that you aren’t alone in the screw up process. Sometimes it’s hard to go with your gut, or sometimes you go with your gut and it turns out it’s wrong. Either way, I want you to know something. Being hurt is always going to be a part of the process if you let it be.
Right now, I’m sitting here after yet another screw up. I went against my gut. I convinced myself that it was okay to give someone another chance after I had given them a million and one. I thought “Eh, what’s one more chance after a million?” Let me tell you something, one more chance is confusion. It’s heartbreak all over again. It’s not knowing whether to hold on or let go.
In the moment, it was awesome. I loved giving them another chance. I loved having my best friend back to confide in. I loved laughing with them. They really showed me a completely different side of them. I thought they had really changed. I thought there was no way they could ever go back to the person they were before. But man they always gotta prove me wrong don’t they?
I guess the moral of this story here is you have to decide who you can trust or not. In the end, you give people the power to hurt you. Whether you go with your gut or not, you still might get screwed. You have to decide if the person you are dealing with is worth hurting over. Are they?
