This Is Me Telling You To Take Control Of Your Life

One decision can change your life, change it forever; it change your life for the better or for the worse.

Some decisions require great thought, while others require none.

Recently, I have been faced with a decision that would change my life forever. A part of me feels so helpless. I don’t know what to do. I feel so powerless in a situation where I have complete control. I know exactly what I want to do. But, I doubt myself. I fear the consequences and possibility of what might happen.

I have sought help from friends. It’s human nature to seek help, to confide in loved ones. Hell, I even booked an appointment with a new therapist. I need confirmation that I’m making the right choice.

My best friend tells me that I know in my heart what to do and if other people do not respect my decision, they do not respect me. She tells me that if the people who love me do not accept my decision, they do not love me.

This is me telling you to take control of your life and own your decisions.

I struggle with control. I struggle with confidence and ownership. I need reassurance and human comfort. These traits do not make me weak. They make me vulnerable.

I’ve doubted myself for too long.

I’ve learned to stop worrying about what others may think of me, what they may say behind my back or to my face.

This is me telling you that you are exactly where you need to be. Sure, life is constantly changing. And at times, you’ll be faced with decisions that make your stomach roar and your brain spin. But you are in control. Do not let what others think or say determine your future.

Though it may take time for you to come to your decision, you are making the right choice.

You are in control. Don’t let power fall into the wrong hands. TC mark
