If you can accept the consequence ( positive or negative) You have the power to do whatever you want to do.
Ask again yourself about your belief system why you do or don’t, your decision to take such action.
Choosing a job, partner, religion or atheism, killing animal for the sake of you are being phobic, hating or loving, whatever.
Not your friend, circumstances, family or even your God – your willingness is a decision created by you.
You have the ultimate power.
