We make countless decisions each and every day.
What to wear.
What to eat.
Who to spend time with.
Where to shop.
When to go to bed.
The list goes on and on.
Some of these decisions are relatively insignificant.
What color socks or underwear to wear, for example.
Others might carry more gravity.
Perhaps choosing whether to quit a job or end a relationship.
Those more significant decisions are even tougher when there is no clear winner.
When both options have their advantages and disadvantages.
When you’re stuck weighing competing values.
It’s not always easy to tell what to do.
In situations like these, we can feel tremendous pressure.
Pressure to make the right decision.
Pressure to take the correct path.
Pressure to choose the best option.
This pressure can be paralyzing.
Fortunately, this pressure you feel is within your control.
Even if it’s the result of others’ opinions or demands.
Even if the consequences of your decision are very real.
The pressure is a feeling.
It’s up to you.
Let it go.
Forget about the idea of choosing the “best” option.
You have no way of knowing what that is.
There is no “best” option.
You’ll be grateful for some decisions.
You’ll wish you’d made others differently.
You can assess, plan, and think all you want.
There’s no way to tell right now.
Do what you can with what you know.
You’ll continue building your best life.
You’re worthy of that.
You’ve got this.
