I need to say some things.
1. This was my decision.
2. I don't like it even a tiny bit, but it still needed to be done.
3. I am a man, after all.
4. Some things can neither be excused nor ignored.
5. You people who thought I was being stubborn before - you haven't seen anything yet.
6. I'm sure that I will second-guess this for the rest of my life, but I will not regret it.
7. Nobody can ever say that I didn't try my absolute hardest.
8. This is not my loss. My loss happened a long time ago.
