making choices - for dummies

I finally figured some things out. So I made a little list, named "How to make choices - for dummies". I'm happy to share it with you.

1. LISTEN TO YOUR HEART
It sounds cliché, but it's quite the mastertrick. In the end, you almost always know in advance what you are going to do, you just didn't realise it yet.

2. DON'T LISTEN TO YOUR BOYFRIEND
Because in the end, you probably won't listen to him anyway. It doesn't matter that much what he thinks, since you have to live life in your own way and by your own rules. By doing so, he will only love you more, since you appear to be smart and confident in planning ahead and making your own decisions.

(Unless he's the kind of boy that holds your hand at night and makes all of your daytime dreams come true - in that case, he'll probably be able to figure out all things at once by planning One Big Common Future. In that case, you're lucky)

3. TRY TO LISTEN TO YOUR MOM
She's most of the time right. I mean it.

4. IF YOU ARE STILL NOT ABLE TO FIGURE THINGS OUT
Don't move. As long as you don't choose, everything remains possible. Time will come and time will tell you what to do, eventually. The only thing you need is trust, not even faith, but TRUST. Most of the big issues in life figure themselves out, eventually.

5. SMILE
Most of the time, making choices sucks. You win some, you lose some; you go forth, you fall behind. In the end, it is very important to keep on smiling. When smiling, we release endorphins and serotonin, which makes us feel happy. It boosts our immune system and it lowers our blood pressure. Above all, smiling is contagious. So whatever whenever and where-ever you go, don't you ever forget to SMILE.

(Unless something very bad happens, offcourse)

  1. what if you've made a choice and now things get serious and you're so anxious and afraid of not making it that it feels like there is no more choice - only failure.
