Reflect and Decide

These revelations come with making the decision to deeply reflect on the life we choose to live, and analyzing what works for us and what doesn’t.

Choose Your Fate

Though both options are viable, I’ve spent most of my life accepting the way things are, and while it worked for many years, it no longer does.

Don’t Be Agreeable

My situation is a perfect example of why being agreeable is a bad thing — it removes our autonomy and lets others manipulate our lives as they see fit. Those other people may not even realize they’re manipulative, but it will feel that way to us because we gave up our autonomy to appease them.

Decide and Conquer

Making big decisions that can fundamentally disrupt our lives can be daunting, but the damage done by refusing to make decisions is worse than any disruption.
