Alot of times doing the right thing is often times the hardest option. But it's the BEST thing to do. Despite the immediate consequence(s)....it'll make you feel better deep down inside instead of letting it eat at your soul and well being. If others can't appreciate you for doing what's right, then they will have to deal with that on their conscience...not you. Especially if you are looking out for them in the process and not for selfish reasons.
So doing the right thing .... is right....right!?!?
