    I am so indecisive. I hate picking a line at

    the grocery store or at the bank drive through. I ALWAYS pick the wrong one! I am guaranteed to pick the line where the person in front of me uses a check, has to find the exact change in pennies, or picks up an item without a price tag. If there's a big decision to make I...

    I Have No Practice

     I remember how much I wanted to make some decisions on my own when I was a kid or a little older. I wanted to choose my high school and I wasn't allowed to. I wanted to say aloud my arguments in family discussion and if they were different from others - I wasn't allowed to...

    I can make up my mind,

    have it figured out and the change my mind again and again and again. I never settle and it makes me annoyed. I just can't figure out what is best. It's over such petty things too. Surely a mental condition?

    I struggle so badly and spend a long time

    figuring it out, only to go back to what I initially wanted to do, then questioning that. I never ever make a real decision. It's so hard. Sure there must be some mental illness for this..

    I was thinking about swapping degrees.

    But I'm not sure... What do you think? Well... I want the engineering REALLY BAD!!! But the CAD design degree is shorter... The engineering pays around $120,000.00 to $225,000.00 a year... The cad... Only $40,000.00 a year... I just wonder at times if I am smart enough to...

    I see there are other people like me

    that have trouble making decisions. I'm about to back-out of a deal I made with an apartment complex in town. My only problem is my family will do without my income and be severely strapped. The guilt pours on today.

    To Trust The Instincts Or Not

    I have trouble making decisions. I usually have to force myself to make the decision. Usually making the wrong choice feels better in the end than if I were to not act at all. And, ironically, making the right choice usually is a little bit harder than making the wrong choice. I...

    Hmm

    The trouble with me is that I always seem to pick the wrong choice. My choices always get me into trouble, so I sometimes feel the urge to avoid choices as much as possible. I dont allow myself to do that though. If I do, I might lose who I am. And I dont want that. I really dont...

    Now Hiring (but Not Really).

    Most days, I can't even decide what I want for breakfast. I feel like I'm deciding the fate of the free world. It would be nice if I could have a decision-maker to just follow me around everywhere I go.

    What Would You Like For Dinner?

    I can't make decisions about the simplest things for the life of me. It's always "Ummm..." followed shortly by an "I'll think about it." which I never get back to. It took me 2 years to finally get my driver's license, and you can only imagine how traumatizing that experience was...

    They Terrify Me

    I hate the thought of hurting/disappointing someone else so much so that I will quite deliberately make a decision that is bad for me so they are not put out. That's why decisions scare me so much because I don't want to hurt anymore.

    It's especially with the clothes I wear.

    Because I want to express myself completely and I'm always pursuing individualism. So my clothes have to be something that describes me and not a thousand people. It took me months to decide on my prom dress and I finally found this Victorian little cute pink dress and I adore...

    the face of this Earth. Not so much with the small day-to-day things, but anything involving a commitment greater than a few months, I tend to get paralyzed to the point of either not making a decision or making a decision that, looking back, was not so great. Maybe it's...
