Getting all positive characteristics cannot be happen all in one day, but through commitment and practice anybody can have it. Although forgiving the people who hurt me is not easy, I became able to do it through willingness and practice.

That is why I have taken the liberty to measure the pros and cons of a tremendous decision about to be made. In this presentation, you will find that I have given much thought into this choice. Just because I get more goods than bad or vice versa, does not mean I did not follow my heart, choosing the decision that will make me happy.
