Why did I do that?

How many times have you kicked yourself with the words, "Why did I do that?" Most of us have asked such a question far more often than we would like to admit.

Imagine sitting in the middle of a road and there is an oncoming car heading rapidly towards you. You have a choice of only two actions. To get out of its way and live to fight another day, or to sit where you are and be run over, which means either being badly injured, or, much worse, being killed. In that split second, you have to make a decision. If you are trying to commit suicide, your decision will be to keep sitting and hope to be killed. However, if you did not expect a car to be in your path, you will be getting out of its way pretty fast to save your life.

That was a simple illustration of why we have to make decisions: to dictate the way we wish to live by making either pleasant or unpleasant choices. Our life consists of making decisions, one way or another, they are imperative. But I think, many people deliberately prevent themselves making decisions because they cannot bear the consequences.Isn't?

We do take decisions every second of our life. But the decisions we take that are life changing, for good or for worse, are what matters. 'What will they think?' should be replaced with 'What do I want?'
