Root of problem: I want too many things. I can’t have everything I want. I don’t know what I want MOST.
Result: I sit in the same spot and stress and sprout gray hairs and now have to buy hairdye every couple of months to conceal the grays. (true story)
Having the freedom to make you own choices is nice and all, but sometimes I feel like I can’t handle the open-ended-ness (is that a word?) of it all. I want a little bit of everything - which is why I love buffets and mini beer samplers and eyeshadow pallettes that give you 12 mini colors for the price of one. But when it comes to moving forward in LIFE, a sampler of different opportunities is not an option. I can’t walk down every fork in the road, and the pressure to choose ONE and stick with it overwhelms me and leaves me in the same spot, blocking the intersection.
