Mess Up Over Stress?

I don't ever make a wrong decision. Ever.

No joke.

Let me try and explain. I spend so much time over analyzing every little decision in my life that every decision I do make, is right. I feel like I have never made a wrong decision in my life because I over compensate by thinking about all of the different outcomes of every decision--however minor the decision may be. What would happen if I gave up some of this stress in exchange for some 'mess ups'? Would this make me a more happy person? What if I didn't do the 'worst case scenario' thinking and just went for it? Obviously I would make a lot more mistakes, but would I enjoy life more? Would it be worth the risk?

I don't know. But I think it's worth a shot. I don't know if I'm ready to jump off the diving board yet though, if you know what I'm saying.

Any advice?


  1. it's a tricky situation. as long add you're choosing between two good things, you can't really make a wrong decision. good things like apples or oranges. bad things like sprite or beer. get it? sometimes just going for something without analyzing it can be rewarding. it can lead you down a path and experiences you might not have had before. its just different. no decision is ever bad.

    1. Thanks Brissa. I think this is the problem I have because I always am spending so much time analyzing over two right choices. I should just make a choice and move on. It's so hard for me though because I want to make the 'right right' choice. But you make a point that I hadn't thought of before, maybe I will have experiences I wouldn't have had before if I didn't spend so much time analyzing. Thanks.
