It is really easy to go through a cycle and want to make a permanent decision. I am the master of wanting to do this when I’m upset especially, but also when I’m flying high on happiness. I have tried hard not to allow myself to do it just then. My perspective on things is not the best. And I don’t want to ruin what I have based on the here and now. There are times to be impulsive, and there are times not to be. Making life decisions in a moment of temporary feelings is not one of those times. Trust me. I have lost friends I regretted because of momentary anger or frustration. Don’t do it. Not worth it.

And to end on a fun note:
