A friend of the couple says, “I know that there are people who are terrified that Lesya has made a rash decision that she’ll regret horribly, but sometimes the best decisions are the ones you make in an instant with your heart rather than the ones long-debated in your mind.”
This is “The Power of Now” gone haywire. This is the Eckhart Tolle stuff that people have taken WAY beyond the extreme!
As a pragmatic kind of guy, this irritates me. I know some people love to “live in the moment” but I’ve always said that Eckhart Tolle should write two more books; “The Power of Then” and “The Power of When” because reflecting and pondering is also a big part of the human condition.
I believe that people who do this sort of thing where they do rash, life changing things like Lesya did are probably very unstable. I’m willing to bet money that Lesya has a lot of crazieness going on in her life.
That’s why whenever anyone says something along the lines of “the best decisions are the ones you make in an instant,” I consider it a red flag! Big decisions require thought and council from people you trust; it’s just not wise to make life changing decisions in the moment.
I Agree with you BJ, It's her life and it's her choice but yeah Big decisions like that should be thought about for a while. Had she gotten that on her Arm or Lower Back I could see that being a "what ever" but, my god for the rest of her life she has that on her face. 50% of marriage end in divorce, right ??? :P \m/
