Sometimes I am indecisive because, although I intuitively know what is right for me in a given situation, I want validation from others. It seems I would have outgrown this by now, as I am forty-eight years old. (I’m still working on it.)
A friend spoke with me today about “getting behind a decision,” and I thought about how empowering that would be. So I decided I was going to trust myself, hold onto my convictions, and let go of the need for anyone to validate me. Ironically, throughout the course of the day, I had several people give me unsolicited validation, confirming what I had already decided was true.
