Whenever I have had a big decision to make, I would reach out to my friends and family to confirm that I was doing the “right” thing. Most of the time I think this is a good practice. I mean, isn’t it a good idea to get a second opinion?
Easy decisions we make all day long and usually with confidence. What should I have for dinner? Easy. What should I wear? Easy. Should I go to the movies? Easy.
But when it comes to harder decisions like, should I move to another town? Or should I change jobs? Those decisions require more thought and consideration. Possibly even a second opinion.
The purpose for getting a second opinion is to make sure we have considered all the options and possibilities. Yet sometimes these second opinions make us question ourselves and confuse us even more. We might even cave in and follow what someone else thinks is best for us, but this may only lead to regret.
It is important to take these second opinions, consider all the options, and then, trust yourself to make the decision that is best for YOU! We know what we need. Trust that you know yourself.
