hurt and two seas

I wondered if anyone ever feels like I do. It hurts but you know you are doing the right thing. I guess the important decisions in life are never easy. I just wish I don't have to feel like this...

***********************

There are 2 seas in Palestine. One is fresh and fish are in it. Splashes of green adorn its banks. Trees spread their branches over it and stretch out their thirsty roots to sip of its healing waters.
...The River Jordan makes this sea with sparkling water from the hills. And men build their houses near to it; and every kind of life is happier because it is there.
The River Jordan flows on south into another sea.
Here there is no splashes of fish, no fluttering leaf, no songs of birds, no children's laughter. Travelers choose another route, unless on urgent business. The air hangs heavy above its water, and neither man nor beast nor fowl will drink.
What makes this mighty difference in these neighbour seas? Not the River Jordan. It empties the same good water into both. Not the soil in which they lie; not in the country round about.
This is the difference. The Sea of Galilee receives but does not keep the Jordan. For every drop that flows into it another drop flows out. The giving and receiving go in equal measure.
The other sea is shrewder, hoarding its income jealously. It will not be tempted into any generous impulse. Every drop it gets, it keeps.
The Sea of Galilee gives and lives. This other sea gives nothing. It is named the Dead.
There are two seas in Palestine.
There are two kinds of people in this world.

(adapted from "The Man Nobody Knows" by Bruce Barton)

Don't we all know this kind of people in our lives?

making decision is hard because we are worried and not ready to bear the consequences in case the outcome is not as what we wish. wee~
