I’m horrible at making decisions.
I try weighing the pros and cons, but even that doesn’t seem very foolproof. I want to make the “right” choice, the “perfect” choice. When in reality, all my possible choices are probably far from perfect, and I need to just choose something. Big decisions, like career choices, are extremely difficult.
Even small decisions are much harder for me than they should be. For example, I'm currently trying to clean out my closet, and I can't throw anything out without trying it on first and really making sure I don't want it. If the piece of clothing no longer fits me or is worn out, it makes my decision so much easier!
But if there's nothing wrong with it, and it's just a matter of me never wearing it, I have such a hard time getting rid of it. It's ridiculous! If you don't wear it, throw it out! In the past I would end up keeping it and never wearing it... It's easier sometimes to just put off making decisions. I'm getting better with this though. (I already have a huge box of perfectly good clothes that I'm giving away.
I think it all comes down to putting too much weight on our decisions. If we make the "wrong" choice, it won't be the end of the world, and we can always make another decision to try and fix it. We're all better at dealing with mistakes than we think. I made the wrong career decision, and now I'm starting over. It's not so bad. And really that "wrong" decision was probably right for me at the time. I wouldn't be who I am today had I not made it, so I'm glad I did.
