    How do you make really hard decisions. Life altering decisions….Do you have your own special method or thought process?

    Is it a yes/no decision, or a multiple choice?  Are you trying to make a decision based on logic or a decision based on emotion?

    Decisions around the situation with my niece. It’s VERY complicated.

    Ok, but you are asking how others make decisions. I’m trying to categorize what kind of decision you are asking about. There are yes/no decisions, which usually come down to ‘do I/don’t I’ questions.  There are multiple choice type questions, such as those prefixed with ‘which’.  There are other kinds too.  What kind are you asking about?

    None of the above? idk. It’s not just one or two decisions.

    No greed (wanting too much), no hatred (“not wanting” too much), no ignorance.  That’s the no’s.

    I’ve been trying to figure out how situations interact with each other.  One small mistake can turn into a big disaster further along the line, because some situations amplify mistakes.

    Mistakes always fall into one of those three categories.  Weakness, cowardice?  That’s one of those three.

    Let god decide for you!

    Seriously though try this…

    1. fully inform yourself about each option

    2. write down in bullet point form the possible outcomes for each choice and then the risks for each choice

    3. look for the ‘crunch point’. Find the one factor that is a deal breaker.

    Make a choice and relax. There is sometimes no absolutely right choice. Just the best choice that you can make in the circumstances.

    Maybe there are some ifs involved.
