    I Can Make Up My Mind and I...

    I can make up my mind and I don't like people who are not as decisive as I am. It's not that hard; you either know what you want or you don't. If you don't, it is not that difficult to fake it. People who can't make up their minds just show others how weak they really are. A...

    Indesiciveness Sucks

    I have such a hard time making decisions.  I hate it!  I always second guess myself.  What if things change?  What if I won't be happy?  I'm sure you know the drill.
