So I found myself telling first one friend and than another in the last few weeks that they had chosen happiness; it wasn't easy, but it was as simple as that. And I think a lot of people forget that. Simple isn't easy. Easy isn't simple.
So, if you chose the happy ending, fighting the obstacles, no matter what they are, kudos to you. Practice makes it easier; remember that the easy path is often the one with the tough consequences and the tough path is the one with better ending.
For those ladies who are making those tough choices (and to the ones I don't know about), you are doing the right thing and don't let anyone tell you differently. You are amazing and strong. Tell your stories; you can help others by being truthful and honest. And I am always here if you need and ear or a shoulder.
