I believe that nothing is Black and white. We all make desicions everyday that have two positives. Desicions we make might also have two negatives and we have to choose the lesser of two evils. I had to choose between a once in a lifetime oppurtunity or letting down my whole team for softball. If I had taken this oppurtunity I would have had to quit the softball team at the last minuete. This was a long and stressful desicion. In the end I decided I couldn’t handle the guilt of letting all of those girls down, so I just declined the oppurtunity. That one instance taught me how nothing is truly black and white, and there are always different circumstances. This I believe.
