...to make everything - even tragedy seem simple.
In politics the people that judge your administration are called historians. It takes a few decades to determine whether a President (for example) was a good/bad President. The repercussions of ones behavior cannot be studied until way after the decisions have been made and the end of the game has been reached.
I am making decisions daily that will effect my entire family directly. I am supposed to wait 20 years to find out if I fucked up or not? UGH. I will be moving my family out of the only home they have in their memories. A two year commitment (with contracts and all) have been drawn to lock us into a new life for the next 48 months. According to my original point - this decision cannot be judged until my children are themselves married with children.
My mind has been spinning wondering if I'm making the right move. It's a huge emotional, physical, and financial decision. What does one do when faced with a decision, you might ask? Go visit their dead husband and ask his opinion.
