    Decisions Is Hard

    I can't make decisions. I have to think carefully about choices, and that hinders my ability to make decisions. For example, picking clothing is difficult. I would make a choice, and find something more interesting. Deciding between two favorite items of clothing is intense...

    Too Big of a Decision to Make

    I'm notorious for not being able to make decisions. And it's getting worse as I get older. Well, now I find myself in another tight spot to make a very important decision, and it's making me go insane - literally. I can't sleep and I'm overanalyzing every detail. You see, I'm...

    I Can Never Make a Decision.

    I can barely decide what I want to eat for dinner. Yet somehow I managed to make a huge life-changing decision very easily...I'm glad though. I'm never going to be able to decide anything ever again :D

    I want to be able to speck up

    for myself, I do have a voice for a reason. Sometimes people make important decisions for ME. I don't like it but I think if you don't tell the world who you are, the world will tell you who you are.

    "I Don't Know, What Do You Want To Do?"

    It's not that I'm physically incapable of making decisions, it's just that I worry so much on what the other person wants to do. I don't want to choose something that they may not want and that's why I'm absolutely hopeless at making decisions. Many people I know are like me...

    Decisions, Decisions

    I am absolutely HOPELESS at making decisions 95% of the time. There are times where I know I want something so I will go for it, but the majority of the time I struggle to choose. I can be indecisive with tough life decisions or even something simple as what should I choose to...

    I couldn't decide what to write, but I am forcing myself to type anyway. I have nothing of value to share at this time, but I will at least finish my thought. Now I kind of think that I should delete this because I'm not committed to what I'm typing.

    I Regret Every Decision

    No matter what choice I make, I alway's end up regretting it. It's never the right choice to me, and if I could go back in time and change my decision, it still would not be the right choice.

    I Just Can't Do It!

    I am in between the crossroad and I don't know where to go.   One path leads  me into something new. Yet also means unknown and unfamiliar. The road of gamble. It must be a good path or could be bad. Other path is just also unknown.  But I am familiar...it is the...
