Secondly, think logically. Think about you, your life situation,
finances, and what you want out of life now and in the future. Would
this decision help you get there? Remember that this is reality, the
"real world", and that you can't always prepare for everything in
advance. But you can know yourself well enough to know if you're just
dreaming or if you're seriously motivated to get what you want. You are
smart; smart enough to see what changes this decision may bring to you
& your life down the road, even if you can't foresee everything.

not doubt yourself, your intelligence, or your ability to get what you
want. Do not let anyone ever make you think that you don't deserve what
is not set in stone. As humans, we make mistakes daily. You may fail;
you may hurt someone else accidentally. Fess up, make it right, learn
from it, and move on with your life. Chaulk it up as a learning
experience and next time you'll know better.
