I don’t want to have to make choices for someone else. I have a hard enough time making decisions for myself.
In fact, I’d never make any decisions at all if I didn’t find comfort in believing that all of my choices are in someways preordained, and that each and every decision delivers something of value – even if when it turns out to be nothing but a lesson.
I can live with lessons because I view them them as stepping stones – even silver linings.
But deciding for someone else is not that simple – especially when that person’s view of the world is quite contrary to your own.
What do you do then?
Do you make a decision based on another’s philosophies or your own?
What if you are forced to decide for someone who lived a life hiding from decisions?
Is it fair for that person to be forced to confront a lesson based on a choice he never made?
I don’t have the answers. I doubt I ever will.
I’m too scared to make a decision – and just as scared not to.
