I once read that when you’re depressed, you find it hard to make small decisions. I guess that means I’m not depressed. Pizza or pasta, the green shirt or the blue one – not a problem.
But I’ve got this offer to work in Hong-Kong. It sounds great, maybe a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. But it’s a three year contract. What if I hate it there? What it I don’t find a new job when I come back? Either way, whatever I decide could ruin my whole life, and I’ll always regret it. What do I do?
Maybe I’ll wait. Just a bit.

What is the penalty from exiting your contract early?
Good question, I didn’t really think about that aspect of the story. Perhaps just the fact of quitting, the tinge of failure would be enough to make my hero/heroine worry about it. If you’re afraid of making a decision, maybe it’s not really the possible consequences that are the issue, but the taking charge?
Point noted. Taking charge can be that one makes a bad decision, and rectifies it later by stopping cold, and moving in another direction. Some may call that quitting, while others see it as an act of courage.
Enjoy the energy of crossroads. Adventurous.
Dangerous too :-).
Thanks for visiting.
Yes, yes. Dangerous!
Nice! I like this one a lot. This definitely bring across the fear of living, but it also brings across some excitement. Not too much, just enough to accentuate the fear I think.
I’m glad the fear came across, I wasn’t sure it was strong enough.
Thanks for the challenge.
Ah, the many twists and turns life offers us. Your piece has an authenticity to it, it sounds true blue because it sound true. Lovely.
Thanks. Decisions can be tough.
