You showed up. You evaluated the situation and considered all the options. You gave it everything you had. And most importantly, you made the call. So why would you ever doubt yourself?
Sure, now that you have committed yourself, you may start to wonder. Was I too strong? Should I gave done more? And then your friends, family and co-workers will chime in, "You did what? That is not what I would have done." Well keep in mind, they were not there. And besides, they are not you.
And then there is the aftermath when the outcomes
of your decision start to come in. Maybe it didn't turn out like you hoped. It may even have brought unfortunate results.
But hold your head up. No Monday morning quarterback. You made the best decision you were able to with the information you had at the time. You challenged it. If you are not happy with the results, do not regret it. Rather, ask yourself what you can learn from it. Ask what you could do differently next time. Ask what the possibilities are.
Always question, never doubt.
