Yes or No?

The decisions we take in life often have enduring consequences on the path that we take. From what seems like a distant and forgotten life they come back to haunt us. Some of them just remain etched in our memory for ever. It’s tough to make these decisions and impossible to take them back; no matter how much we may want to.

It’s not about mistakes made but lessons learned. But sometimes it’s these very lessons that are impossible to comprehend and some of which take a life time to justify. It’s less of a cognitive process and requires heart rather than intellect.

The only greater mistake than taking a bad decision is indecisiveness. This inertia of overthinking may cost you the opportunity of a lifetime.

Like missing out on that single chance at happiness.

Lack of comprehension, pretexts, culpabilities, they are impossible to justify.

The result? Lifelong compunction.

Impulse equals vacillation; Decisiveness creates confidence.
