I have learned that when I follow my moral compass, I usually have no regrets even if I initially had little or no support from loved ones. I have made it a practice to do what I feel in my heart to be right! Eleanor Roosevelt had expressed, “Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll be damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.” I would rather be criticized for doing what I felt was appropriate and decent, than sit on the sidelines and do nothing for what I feel is proper and polite. Compunction is louder than any criticism. I would rather be judged for my beliefs and enjoy a clean conscience. Do what you feel is right and your heart will be at peace.
