We’ve always been doing the best that we can with what we know at that time. We choose what to us seems the best option for ourselves then.
To an outsider, it may seem unacceptable, antisocial, or even silly but an outsider doesn’t know what led us to think and behave that way that led to that decision.
I can come up with examples of what I’ve done in the past that I’m uncomfortable about it now. If I was in a similar situation today, I’d do it differently. At that time though, I did what I seemed right for me, I made the best choice I could at that time.
Although the decision may manifest itself into a mistake over time, we can’t really see it coming as it felt like the right thing to do back then.
As long as we have positive intentions, we should continue to make decisions that focuses on our own happiness.
