17 Struggles All Indecisive People Can Relate To

Nothing haunts an indecisive person like the options they didn't choose. Even if they finally make a decision, the only thing they remember is what the other choice was. Indecisive people have it tough. We stress about the simple decisions that some people can make in a second without even thinking. How do you do that? While some people can pick what type of pizza they want in a second, the rest of us are left still wondering if pizza really is the right decision for tonight. Here are 17 struggles that us decision-making-impaired people will understand:

1) No decision can ever be taken lightly.

Every decision is treated like a matter of life and death. Every time.

2) Trying to decide what to put next on this list.

I can't even deal. WHICH ONE WILL I PICK?

3) Being late because you couldn't decide what to wear.

Changing clothes twenty times really does take a while.

4) Panicking when the waiter asks for a second time if you're ready to order.

He definitely didn't give us 5 minutes. I NEED MORE TIME.

5) Never making plans.

Always relying on your friends to make the plans because you don't know what to pick.

6) Thanking Jesus when someone makes a decision for you.


7) There is never enough time.

Even if I'm in the queue for twenty minutes I will still panic when I get to the till at McDonalds.

8) Being swayed too easily.

Having an opinion on something is really hard because everyone has such good points and I agree with them all.

9) Packing.

How many suitcases is too many? Who knows what the weather will be like. Gotta prepare for everything.

10) Major life decisions scare the shit out of you.

How am I supposed to decide what to do after college? What are my options? Do I have any options? I have too many options. IT'S TOO MUCH! can someone else just pick for me?

11) Social media is not your friend.

Instagram has too many filters.

12) Snap decisions are instantly regretted.

As soon as you make a quick decision, you spend the rest of your life  day regretting it. Because it was the wrong one.

13) Your friends hate you.

Because you can never give them a straight answer or opinion.

14) You can't Netflix and chill.

Even if you try hard, you can't just chill with Netflix because it takes you so damn long to choose something to actually watch.

15) Everything is an option.

Even if it isn't, it becomes one. You think of every single possible outcome of every decision that could EVER happen.

16) You never change your hair because the pressure is just too much.

Just a trim, please.

17) You're not actually awkward.

Even though you're not actually socially awkward, it looks like you are, because you take more than three seconds to answer a question. Too many possible answers.
