What is the right decision?

One of my good friends recently transferred and so we went out to Trastevere on her last night. We ended up having a interesting conversation about something comes up a lot for international students. When it comes down to a choice, do you choose to stay with love or to leave and follow through with your original dreams?

We all left our families to come study what we really loved here in Europe. But now we are scared that another decision will come up forcing us to choose between the city or person we love and the job opportunity or education opportunity in our field.

It is our biggest fear. Yet it comes down to the eternal human struggle for happiness. How do we make the choice, and which is truly better? Are either better or will they lead to the same happiness?

It was already such a huge decision to move to Italy, I hope that when the time comes I will be able to have both and not be forced with a choice. History has been the love of my life for a very long time, and I would never want to let it go.
