7 Things Only Super Indecisive People Understand

Ask a group of people what their greatest fears are, and you’ll probably get pretty typical answers. Spiders, death, public speaking – all understandable responses, and all admittedly terrifying. However, what I believe to be the real horror is much less discussed, though I know many others that relate. That fear? Making decisions. For as long as I can remember, the prospect of choosing has sent chills up my spine, more than any horror movie ever has. Thankfully, many people I know are as indecisive as I am, so I’m not alone. If you’re one of us, here are some things you’ll definitely be able to relate to.

 

1. The moment of panic when someone asks, “Where do you want to eat?”

I DON’T KNOW. Yeah, there are some restaurants I like, but you’d probably hate all of them. I don’t want this burden. I’m not strong enough for this.

 

2. Never being able to pick out an outfit

I’m probably taking the same amount of time it takes Beyoncé to get ready for the red carpet to get ready for class. There are twenty different rejected outfits scattered all over my floor, and I’ve been trying to choose between two pairs of dark wash skinny jeans for ten minutes. How do people do this?!

 

3. Never being TOTALLY sure of what you want to do with your life

I’m pretty sure I haven’t wasted the last three years of my life on this major for nothing. Then again, maybe tomorrow I’ll wake up and realize I made a stupid decision and end up starting college all over again. *Googles “Ten Best College Majors” just in case*

 

4. Being terrified of dating anyone, because commitment

No matter how much I like you, and how much I love spending time together, there will always be a small voice in the back of my screaming at me to run away before things get too serious. It’s endearing, I promise.

 

5. Looking at restaurant menus forever

Yeah, we figured out where to eat, but now I have to stare at a menu with dozens of options and decide whether I’m feeling a chicken burrito, cheese enchiladas, or a steak salad. Does it really matter in the long run? No. Does that prevent me from sweating and hyperventilating when the waiter comes to take my order? Also no.

 

6. Debating haircuts for ages

Some people can cut, dye, and switch up their hair almost daily without looking back. I am not one of those people. Any haircut I get has to be pinned on Pinterest at least 100 times, researched extensively, debated in the group chat, and I’ll STILL probably freak out and cancel my appointment the day before.

 

7. Accepting you’re most likely never going to be able to make major life decisions

Getting married? Buying a house? Having kids? All are purely hypothetical situations that I could never follow through with. You expect me to commit to someone for the rest of my life when I can’t even decide what I want from Taco Bell? Please.

 

Being indecisive is hard enough on a daily basis, but when it comes to things that really matter, it’s torture. Hopefully one day we can all trust ourselves enough to be confident in our choices, but until then, we’ll continue annoying whoever we hang out with by refusing to decide where to eat.
