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 exactly like that!  In the grocery store I will pick up one item, then another, going back and forth.  And forget about trying to shop the endless possibilities online!  I want to research it all before I buy anything!

Researching is a good thing. :-)

I think of too many alternatives, and so I can't make up my mind.

LOL If I look at it that way, I am an Aries, I just do it. On the other hand my DH is a Scorpio and he likes to plan everything.

My hubby and I are both Libras - this makes decision-making a DISASTER.  So I'm going to blame my zodiac sign, haha.

 I hear you there!  I just don't see why my family thinks they need to eat EVERY day!

Quoting sukainah:

I think I am indecisive more than decisive.  One of the times is when it comes to making dinner and what I should make.
