Life is not a dress rehearsal.
It is a 1 take, first take movie that you are the star of.
Not only are you the star, you're also the screenwriter, director and actor.
You get to choose what happens in your movie, no one else.
So make the decision that you need to make, and never be afraid of doing it.
There are no consequences that could ever cause more pain than that which is caused by not making the decision in the first place.
So close the door behind you before it is closed on you.
And never, ever be afraid!
