I have spent way to many hours contemplating which choices to make in situations where it doesn't really matter.
Even sitting down to write this, I feel that familiar, overwhelming tightness grip my throat. I have to make a choice. What is the title going to be? How am I going to start off? Did I make the image too big? Too small? Should I redraw the whole thing to try to make it better?
Like I said, most of that doesn't matter.
But why do these seemingly inconsequential decisions end up causing me to have such drastic thoughts about what the consequences could possibly mean for my future happiness? For example, see the above image. This is a real life scenario. Standing in line (or even worse, browsing the menu online before I go, in hopes of avoiding this very problem), I am met with racing thoughts and a knot in my stomach. And then there are the BIG decisions. I'm not even sure I can go there.
How do you choose?
