    That One. Or Maybe This One?

    Simple decisions or big ones don't ask me. I've got no idea. I could neve choose for you because I always want to know what you want. Give me two choices and I'll decide in two hours, give me ten choices I'll decide in ten hours, catch my drift? I'll only decide if I absolutely...

    I Hate Making Decisions

    I am no good at making decisions and often wait for someone else to make them for me. I have put things in place in my life to avoid having to make decisions; I have the same meals on certain days of the week and I wear my clothes in the order they come out of my wardrobe (unless...

    It Doesn't Matter What It Is

    It doesn't matter what it is I can never make my own decisions. I constantly find myself looking at my boyfriend for answers. Does this mean I am looking for his answer so he doesn't see mine as a bad answer, or does it mean I'm not comfortable with myself, or could it be...

    So Indecisive....

    .....it has taken me I don't know how many months to decide to write a story in this group. I really don't like making decisions, I don't know why but I don't think I will make the correct choice most of the time. - RDW

    I Hate It

    It kills me that i am wishy washy. Then when i do finally come to a decision i am easily swayed or just don't stick with it. How can anyone take me seriously when i am not even strong in my own convictions. The problem is i don't know how to fix it because i guess i am never...

    Why Is Making A Simple Decision So Hard?

    I make life and death decisions lightening fast. I have done so for years. Constantly deciding priority levels, what help to send, what advise to give, what extra steps to take and more. I have to decide so much with little time to think. So when it comes to easy decisions...

    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 have such a hard time making decisions. I know it's frustrating for other people around me when it takes me forever to decide anything, but it's also frustrating for me too. I have such a hard time deciding what movie to watch, what to eat, or what activity to do when others...

    Should I, Shouldn't I?

    I hate making decisions. It feels like no matter what I choose in my life, no matter how small it is, always seems to invariably end up being the wrong choice. Maybe I only THINK it is, but it still feels that way. I'm always worried about the road not traveled and can never...

    Very.

    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...

    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
