    Movin' On Up

    I have a bit of a crisis. Today, I interviewed for a promotion at my full-time job. Generally, that wouldn't be much of a crisis, in of itself. You see, the issue is that I might actually get it. Again, "What's the issue with that", you might say. The problem is this. My...

    I have a constant battle with anything

    and everything that comes up in my mind! It's like a debate between what I should do or what action I should take. But, I like being indecisive :) I believe it makes me a more open minded person and being able to see the world in a more vast way.

    I'm not sure I've I'm necessarily indecisive,

    or if I'm just too concerned with what others may want... Like, if someone asks me what song I want to listen to, I always tell them "I don't care, whatever you want to listen to." Because I always feel like they might now like a song that I say, and I'd rather be content...

    It Never Fails

    no matter how simple the choice I am always indecisive of course there are somethings I just don't care about and go with the flow. But I find myself debating the littlest things at times. It don't help that my best friend and my family are the same way it takes us forever to...

    Especially about romance.

    I get deeply attached to people and can't seem to let them go. That is happening right now and its only getting worse. I'm not asking for help. I just need to let this out.

    I struggle to make concrete decisions all the time, because I'm always second-guessing myself, wondering if it was the right choice, and reassessing. I might originally be confident about a decision I've made, but then the doubt will set in, and I'll rethink absolutely everything...

    A weakness of mine, but also an asset.

    It's not that I can't decide what U'd like, but more a case of having uncertainty about what is right and best for all involved.

    I can generally go wherever

    and do whatever I want. Obviously I can't tell the future and don't know what will be best, just that I will make it work. Action is generally better than inaction but sometimes I think it's best to wait for the moment to be right. Still major decisions stress me out

    A classic example of my inability to decide.

    I've decided I'm going to work and call up everybody of what I'm planning to do. My brother passes by and whips out his college form to take accountancy. Now, I'm envious and second-guessing my decision!
