Right or easy?

‘Sometimes we must choose between what is right, and what is easy’ – Albus Dumbledore

This week, I have been forced into situations in which I have had to choose between what is right and what is easy.
The right path is the one which could potentially ruin friendships, cause pain and upset but ultimately get the help that is needed to make a better future.
The easy path is to keep acting like nothing is wrong, doing what is wanted of you by other people and pretend everything is just fine. But, I guess if you continue down this road you will eventually come to a dead end or an obstacle that cannot be beaten. There will come a time in which you have to pay for cutting the corners and skimming the edges.
Although my self doubting nature is creeping in and my longing for a perfect life with perfect balance remains strong, this week I believe I have managed to find the courage to do what is right. The right path is always the hardest but it is also the one that brings the best outcome.
