Cut like a knife

What would you do, if you made a decision, and now it is cutting you like a knife????

Depends on exactly what it was that was cutting me about it.
I would hope I would admit that there was something wrong with the descision, or at least that the outcome was not intended. Depending on exactly what it was, make amends or make peace of some sort. It really would depend. Mostly try to figure out what it was that was wrong for me and what options I have. Usually easier said than done. If it was at a more introverted time of my life I would twist it arround in my head and obsess over it until I was tormented enough by it to deal with it appropriately. I don't recomend this version. Cut yourself some slack if you can: whatever it is, you are human and people make mistakes.
If it isn't too personal, a few more details would make it easier to give more direct advice.
Whether or not you want to tell us, there is a lot you can think about. It is obvious that whatever decision you made isn't sitting well with you. Do you know what it is that is hurting you about the decision? A wrong decision you feel bound to? One that is right but has unentended consequences or requires something painful? Something was right about the descision... What was it you wanted to have happen when you made it?

I would say that I would correct that situation if I could.
If it was out of my control I would try really hard to let it go because stress and worry will do you no good.
Then meditate and learn from your mistakes. As Deb said, we are human and its ok to make mistakes.

I agree with deb and wb, follow your inner bell. If you feel this bad about the decision, then make it right if you can. If you cannot then learn from your mistake and turn the negative energy you are feeling into a positive learning experience. Good Luck and Blessed Be!
