A Difficult Choice
Have you experienced a time when you need to make the toughest decision in your life? How did you cope with it?
I remember a time when I had to make a choice between a good opportunity working abroad but leaving my family behind. My kids were too small that time. It was a great opportunity of earning more than I did here in the country. The motivation was so strong because most of my friends told me that it was a package of a lifetime. When I talked to my husband about it, he made me decide on my own but reminding me of all the considerations I had to weigh.
The thought of giving my family a better and luxurious life overwhelmed me so much. Although my husband was in full support, I felt that time that he never wanted me to leave but caught in the middle of wanting to make me grow professionally as well.
In the end, I decided to let that opportunity passed because I realized that I could not leave my family behind in exchange of treasure that I could possibly get far away from them. I never regret that decision but it made me realize how I love my family more than any riches the world can offer.
