The Right vs. the Easy

I just got finished doing something really difficult but what I feel to have been very necessary. It's entirely true, the easy thing and the right thing are rarely the same. I hate hurting people... even in the most trivial ways. I'm just not cut out for it. I like to make people laugh... not cry. But I don't have that luxury... of being able to always make people happy. I don't think anyone really does. And to have to really hurt someone's feelings... to make them really sad... even if only for a brief moment... it's as though it's more torture for me than for them... but I doubt that's really true.

So now I have to sit here and feel guilty... but really that's nothing new. I was raised Catholic.
