How many of us struggle because we fail to understand how to make a choice and therefore a decision, or we rely on other people’s judgment of our choices? It would be good if we could make a choice.
Once we learn how to make choices, we’re likely to respond in appropriate ways so that we can make a decision. It’s a confidence thing, but as adults we need to be happy with the choices we make.
Judgments are made based on our choices, but judgments can sometimes then interfere with what becomes our reality, usually because the choice we’ve made isn’t a choice we’re happy with. It’s fine to accept another person’s choice, just so long as their choice complies with our wants and needs.
When we’re in a position where we cannot decide, we will fail to make any decisions. Once we’ve taken everything into consideration and ruled things out, we’re more likely to find direction and clarity, which will enable us to start making our own decisions.
I also believe that making a choice on what we’re not interested in or don’t want, is often easier than making a choice on what we do want. We tend to worry more about making the right choice on something we want in case it doesn’t work out.
Either way, we must take away the stress, by weighing up the pros and cons and then declare our choice.
