Default Win the exchange?

So I found myself in this position today:

q3r1k1/3b1pbp/3p2p1/2pP4/2Q1PP2/4R2P/1PB3P1/2B3K1 b - - 0 25

Obviously, 25 ... Bd4 wins the exchange.

I wimped out.

The problem, as I see it, is that after 25. ... Bd4 26.Kh2 Bxe3 27.Bxe3
the position looks like something only a computer could love. With
Bd2-c3, followed by e4, it looks like white will have an excellent
compensation for the exchange in terms of a strong kindside attack,
particularly with the dark squares around my king all weakened like that.

Thoughts? Was I way too cowardly here?
