Why is it by doing what is right never feels right?
Why is it that when you do what is right, it hurts?
Why is it that whenever you do what is right, it hurts the people around you?
As is so often said, doing what is right isn't always easy. Surely, it is easier to ignore the given situation, to pretend it didn't happen, but by doing so, condoning the situation that was wrong to begin with.
If everyone did the things they were supposed to, and didn't do the things they weren't supposed to do, no one would be in this predicament.
Go home, hug your kids, and tell them you love them. Whether they have 4 legs or 2.
