After doing anything that took courage or experiencing something that caused some discomfort, you’re likely to have to deal with the aftermath.
It could be how you feel about yourself or how you feel about others.
Maybe you decided to break the ice and have a conversation you’ve been putting off for months. If that’s what you decide, once the talk is over a weight will be lifted.
There are endless possibilities of what the aftermath might be. For the example mentioned above it could be confidence, patience, understanding or just frustration.
The aftermath is unavoidable and sometimes it’s so small that you aren’t even aware of it.
But it’s important to remember Newtons third law of motion ‘For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.’
