The Unpopular Choice


The time that I made an unpopular choice? That is all the time.

But the biggest one would be back in 2008 when I ended an 18-year relationship to maintain some sanity.

However, everyone wanted me to at least try to make it work. But I refused.

Sometimes we must stick to our own truths to survive. Even in the midst of all of their doubts about your decision. We must stand strong.

It is a process, but well worth it.

Since then I’ve gone back to school to get my criminal justice/psychology degree. I have a year and a half left. I’ve become stronger for my children. The cycle of dysfunction had to end in order for me to grow.

The choice was unpopular but who cares. Popularity is foolish to strive for anyway. Popularity breeds immorality.


In Response To Today’s Daily Prompt:

Unpopular

Tell us about a time when you had to choose between two options, and you picked the unpopular choice.

Thanks for the great idea, Diamond Mike Watson!

  1. Hi Laura,

    Amen and Bravo. That’s the spirit. It seems that we live the first part of our lives for our families, then we realize it’s our turn to be

    “free to be Me.”

  2. Hi,
    Love this post! I made the unpopular choice to move to the other side of the world, far away from family and friends. Needless to say this choice was hugely unpopular, but I had to do it to find myself. If I didn’t, I would always have felt like I lived the life everyone expected me to, rather than actually live my life for me.
    Have never, and will never regret my choice, because it was MY choice.
