You hear it all the time; “Well he said this so I….” Whatever you fill in the blank with does not matter, it is all illogical. Every action you take is a choice. Others might impact your choice, but you get to decide how much you will allow them to impact your choice, and you alone are 100% responsible for the actions you take.
No matter the circumstances, do the right thing. Sometimes the right thing to do might not benefit you, in fact, it might be bad for you; do it anyway.
