📅 Thought for today:
‘Life presents you with so many decisions. A lot of times, they’re right in front of your face and they’re really difficult, but we must make them.’
— Brittany Murphy

Life is indeed full of decisions. Some seem obvious, and some seem difficult. We worry so much about making the “right” decision, sometimes to the point of not making a decision for fear of getting it “wrong”.
For one client the choice was actually whether to make a decision or not. When the consequences of a “wrong” decision are perceived to be so undesirable that we believe it is better to not decide.
Oh, how we tie ourselves in knots.
“What is the worst that can happen?”, I have been asked by my own therapist sometimes.
It is not always a useful question, because the worst that can happen can seem quite terrifying.
For me, having experienced the worst that can happen on a number of occasions, it is not quite as scary as it was.
If you are stuck on a decision, I’m happy to help.
