At what point does one have to re-evaluate life decisions and consider doing something different? Which sacrifices are acceptable to make at certain points or after certain events, and what things are non-negotiable? How many pro/cons lists can a person make on the same topic/theme over and over again? When does a person suck it up and let go of a dream, an ideal, a seemingly unrealistic expectation, at least for the short term, so that in the long term it may potentially come to pass? How much should one factor in what those who have gone before her have done or what "everybody else is doing" right now?
I need a voice to tell me. Just like last spring I was clearly told to say "no" to a job, I need a that same strong voice to clearly tell me if in an upcoming season of life I am supposed to do something different than what I am currently doing or if this is just another test in faith and trust.
I hope this post doesn't sound depressed or desponant. I am neither. Just once again wishing for some answers on how everything is supposed to work. Because honestly, I feel like I followed the voice last spring, and I am not sure that anything came from it other than the fact I still feel confident that I did what I was supposed to do even though I didn't really see any results from the decision other than some peace.
