"Everything in life comes with a price tag!" - Anonymous
I had never imagined that I would witness the effects of this statement so closely, until recently! Suddenly the manifestations of this statement have become evident around me! And a few of these situations are painfully expensive!
It seems, mostly people take chances based on what appears to be "right" or "wrong" in that situation, completely failing to understand that whats relevant today is definitely going to be redundant or even forgotten in the coming years! And then saying that a particular choice was wrong, that too when all the water has gone under the bridge is really pointless!
So that brings us to the question, what exactly is the "right" or "wrong" addressed to? Is it addressing to the people who see it from the other side or is it addressing to the people concerned? Isn't it more to do with, whether that choice is making the concerned people happy or not, rather than how it appears? Logically this question is to be answered by no one else but the people who are directly concerned! And if the answer to this question is "Yes", then by all means its perfectly "right" for them. And if its 'No", then hell no, it possibly cannot be right even if it "appears" to be the mother of all the best situations in life!
More often than not, the extrapolation of such situations unfortunately lead to the price tag attached to the choices based on how things appear than the happiness factor! Going by the proverbial statement of "Everything in life comes with a price tag", we are sure that the cost of happiness is not going to be trivial! But it would surely hold great value for investment, wouldn't it? :-)
