How many of us struggle because we don’t have the confidence to make a choice, we rely on another person’s opinion, or we ask that person first?
Once we have the confidence to make a choice, we’re likely to respond in ways that will improve our ability to make our choice. It’s a confidence thing, but as adults we need to be happy with the choices we make and be settled on those.
It’s fine to accept another person’s choice, as long as their choice accords with our wants and needs. Once we’ve taken everything into consideration and ruled some things out, we’re more likely to find direction and clarity.
I believe that making a choice on something we’re not necessarily interested in or don’t want is easier. We tend to worry more about making the right choice about something we care about or want in case it doesn’t work out.
We should try weighing up the pros and cons, then think about whether it feels right. That way we’re more likely to feel comfortable with our choices.
