rather than where I actually live.
Can I not make a decision on anything? Must I always bounce back and forth, to and fro, until my head and stomach hurts? Is it my perfectionism that is driving me nuts? I keep putting off doing things until I know it is going to turn out just right, but that's not going to happen because this is the REAL WORLD where nothing is a sure thing. There is no absolute way to know if a choice will lead to more joy or regrets. It is impossible to really know how I'll feel 5 or 10 years down the road. Fear of the unknown immobilizes me. The uncertainty leads to indecision which leaves me, and those around me, in limbo.
