Sometimes we just need to be better safe than sorry…especially when we are talking about personal safety. When it comes to personal safety I would much rather be safe than sorry later on.
Better Sorry than Safe…sometimes though the opposite is how we need to roll. There are other times we just need to let caution go by the way side, this is usually when I speak my mind or my piece about something. There have been several times that I have been sorry that I had to say what needed to be said and I have lived with the consequences. Unfortunately there are times in our lives when we need to speak out whether for ourselves or for someone else.
It hurts like crazy when you have to speak out and tell a friend they are being an idiot but a true friend will still do it. It also hurts both parties when you have to speak out about family anything…it never fails there are always hurt feelings but sometimes leaving things unsaid is not in everyone’s best interest.
There have also been those times, especially as a mom, that I have told the kids not to do something because they were going to get hurt and sure enough that is what happened. I figured out pretty earlier with my first child that I could not protect him forever but it wasn’t for lack of trying.
Sometimes we all choose to err on the side of caution and other times we just need to get a good grip and jump.
