You Have The Right To Change
Very few things are etched in concrete. You always
have the right to change your mind, even if it means someone
else won't like it. If you decide that whatever you were going
to do isn't right for you, it is best to change your mind before
you live to regret your decision.
While in the process of shopping for bedroom furniture
I bought and cancelled two sets. I still haven't bought anything,
as I just can't find exactly what I want. The second time I
cancelled my order my husband told me that the sales person
wasn't going to like me much. That may be very true, but the
salesperson isn't the one that ultimately has to live with my
The decisions that we make in any moment might
not be the decisions that we want to live with. It is good to
give yourself permission to reconsider. I have made decisions
that I wanted to change, but because of peer pressure, fear
or other external forces, I lived unhappily with the decision.
In the moment the decision might seem like the
right thing to do, but later you might view it differently.
If you decide to change your mind, it is okay. There might be
a price to pay, but in the long run it is better to change your
mind sooner than later.
I am not saying it is good to be indecisive. There
are times, however, when you make a decision that seems right
at the time, but viewed from a different perspective, you can
tell that it isn't. I often use the three-day rule, if after
three days I am still happy with my decision then I go with
it. That way I know I am making the decision fully aware. Often
when you make a decision in the moment it is based solely on
emotion with no logic involved. When you give yourself space
to think about the decision, you have the opportunity to blend
emotion and logic together to make a more informed decision
that you can live with.
