Firing someone is not easy.
Even more so when it is someone close to you. Someone you cared for very much.
But that is exactly what I had to do a couple of weeks ago. And even right now I am suffering from its impact. I am stung. Walking about in a daze as if someone has kicked me in the nuts.
The worst part is that I needn’t have done the deed myself. I could have taken the easy way out and delegated the task.
But I chose to do so because it would be better for that person to hear it from me than anyone else.
Sometimes the buck stops with you and you have to take tough decisions. For the greater good even if it hurts one’s self.
