Decisions

Choice is a loaded word. So I prefer to talk in terms of decisions.

How you respond to a situation has more to do with the decision that you take in that moment than the ‘choices’ that you have– or think you may have.

When we think in terms of choices, we consider the external limitations and struggle with justifying our internal conflicts. A decision, on the other hand, is the single outcome of rationalization; it is the product of your thoughts and feelings; it is – in that moment – what you think is the best course of action.

So yes, you could have chosen differently, but we aren’t talking about choices we are talking about the decision that you took.

 

My inspiration to synthesize this piece came from my conversations with my Aunt.
