The only way to know you’ve made a good decision is if your heart feels light and free after making it. You know what is the right choice. Any confusion you have is because there is a disconnect between your heart and your ego. A difference between love and fear.
Here’s a clear way of putting it: any choice made based on fear is the wrong choice. Choosing from fear doesn’t protect you. In the end, making that choice will only guarantee that your fears will come true.
Choose from a place of love. Choose from a place of kindness. Even if it means admitting your past conduct was wrong. The world vitally needs kindness so much more than you need to stubbornly save face.
