Why am I so indecisive?

Posted by   + Show Post

There are moments where I waste a lot of time. Yes, when I get sucked into a reality TV marathon is one. Making decisions is another. I have realized I am really indecisive...whether shopping for a new tote bag or debating what to wear, I can spend quite a few more minutes than I need to on making a decision.

Maybe I've always been a tad slow on choosing A, B or C, but I'd never really noticed it. Now, as time is short and days are filled, when I'm indecisive and can't make up my mind...well, it really gets me off schedule, which stresses me out and then makes me even more paralyzed to make a choice.

So, what's at the root of my indecisiveness? Part of it, I'm sure, is that I'm tired. My brain is just wiped out and the ol' noggin isn't firing as quickly. The other part? I don't want to make a mistake. I don't want to choose incorrectly. Weird, but true. This is even a larger issue now as I think so many elements of this Mommy Life is out of my control, often my time is not always my own, the things I do have control over, well, I want to do them right.

What do you think? Are you decisive or indecisive? When are the times you are most indecisive?

I am not usually indecisive.  The only time I am is when I am picking books to buy.

 I'm actually pretty decisive, otherwise I get anxious.

I am generally decisive.  I am indecisive when it comes to spending money on myself.

Your personality and how you approach and navigate life.

I am not like this- I am a "tickerer off-er" which comes with it's own problems.

I am very indecisive about MYSELF and things for MYSELF.

If I had to pick a school for my son - done, if I had to pick an outfit for his pictures - done, if I had to pick a birthday party theme for my mother - done !

Its always about me and things I buy or do for myself.
