What is decidophobia?
Well, it lies in the name. It is the fear of decisions.
That has been a fear of mine since I was a kid. I could never fully make a decision on my own without the opinions of others.
Either that or I would look for signs in shows, movies, and everyday life.
Subtle hints from a higher power that I should do this, instead of that.
But as we all grow, we lose the fears and phobias we once had. Mine is slowly dissipating.
I am at a time in my life where there are a lot of decisions that need to be made. From what major I choose to the profession I want to be in for the rest of my life.
It’s a never-ending spiral of decisions that you, yourself, have to make.
It is one of the most terrifying yet thrilling parts of life. This is the time where we have to go on our own path. A path where we decided to go, without the influence of others. A path that may be filled with many hazardous bumps but, in the end, be what we needed to come out on the other side.
Even though I have made some of these decisions and are still making the rest of them, my phobia still hides in the corners of my mind. For any decision, wrong or right, can change your life. But it’s all a part of destiny, right?
