When someone is letting you down they’ll often say something like, “This is the hardest decision I’ve ever made.”
It sounds nice. And it’s nice that they bother to say it. But it doesn’t do much to soften the blow and does nothing to change the fact they’re rejecting you.
What they’re really saying is, “I know this is going to hurt you, which is probably going to hurt me too but I’m doing it anyway.”
And when you put it like that, the first way does sound a lot nicer.
They often mean that it was an easy decision not to…
The easier decision to stay. The easier decision not to say no. The easier decision to stay in their comfort zone.
The shit thing about life is that the hardest decision is usually the right one.
Easy road, hard life. Hard road, easy life.
As they say.
