5 Crazy Choices People Make Every Day

People make some really crazy choices. I know I have. And I’m not talking about buying those eye-watering two-tone pants that I thought were pretty funky when I was 14. Or the time I decided to ‘bleach’ streaks in my hair using actual toilet bleach.

1. Choosing to Struggle

I’m making a reference here to my own alcoholic, anxiety-ridden past. Instead of choosing to seek help for my mental health issues, I decided to struggle along on my own. Not only did that get me into a world of pain, but it also wasted a good chunk of my life.

2. Choosing to Settle

Too many people decide to settle for lives that don’t make them happy. They will put up with a job they hate, a partner they are not passionate about, and a life that doesn’t fulfill them.

3. Choosing Not to Step Up

It is both saddening and maddening to see people not living up to their potential because they believe they are not good/capable/strong enough to “step up” in life. We only have one life, so we may as well decide to try things out, win or lose, or we may miss out on real fulfillment.

4. Choosing to Shrink

If you’re not growing, then you’re generally shrinking. It is all too easy, especially as we age, to stop making the effort to try new things. But once you stop broadening your horizons, your comfort zone begins to shrink until you end up with a very ‘small’ life indeed. And that’s just really sad.

5. Choosing to Be Average

You are not an average person. No-one is really ‘average’, but many people decide it is easier to go along with the crowd. They choose to drift along like sheep in one big herd. Sadly, this means that they lose or hide all the things that make them special. And that’s crazy, because it is our individualities that make the world a better place.
