Delaying decisions. I actually think it’s a sign of something great. It’s a sign that you believe in yourself. So much to the point where you will pass up great opportunities believing that better ones will come. The problem with that, however, is sometimes, better does not come. And you’re left alone. And your optimistic view of the world begins to crumble. Maybe you’re not that special. Maybe people don’t really have your best interests in mind. Maybe you’ve led yourself astray with your false sense of confidence. Maybe you’re just like everybody else. And in fact, in many ways, we are. That’s nothing to be ashamed about. If anything, it’s a reminder of our humanity. Nobody gets a free pass. If life throws you a bone and you ignore it enough times, eventually, life will start giving that bone to somebody else. All of the sudden, you’ll be left wishing for what you once never wanted. Are you holding out for something better? Maybe better will never come. Maybe what you have today, right now, that’s all the better you need.
