The Cost of Coming Clean

There is always a cost for cleanliness; and sometimes you’re not the one who pays for it the most.

But, someone always pays. John Dean knows it and Michael Cohen knows it now as well:

Mr. Cohen should understand that if Mr. Trump is removed from office, or defeated in 2020, in part because of his testimony, he will be reminded of it for the rest of his life.

The cost is sometimes repaid over a long period of time and for these two it’ll be for the rest of their lives.

I think we all have a few of those types of things that may haunt us as well – a few historically-bad decisions that we’re still paying off.

But, this is better than keeping it hidden where it’ll rot and each you alive. That’s a heavier and more-costly end if you simply do nothing.

It’s up to you and I to do the right thing. Everything will be okay.
