Do you think I should do this? Or that?
What do you think of this? Or that?
Which one do you thing I should choose? This one? Or that one?
Reassurance. Asking for someone outside of yourself to make your choice for you. In a sense, that’s actually what it is. Putting the power over your life and your choices, in the hands of somebody else. What for?
You run the risk of being put on pause. On hold. Waiting for the response from your father, wife, boss, co-worker, teacher or best friend. Not being able to move on, using the energy of the moment, because you are… what? Afraid you might make the wrong decision? Might pick the wrong thing? Walk down a path you should not have chosen?
Letting others choose for you might seem like an easy way to live life. But is it really your life then?
