Making The Right Decisions When Things Are Going Wrong

September 25, 2020

 Making the right decisions, when everything in your life seems to be going wrong, is a very hard thing to do. Because surely you want to run and hide right now, and let someone who actually knows what they’re doing take charge? But for most of us, there is no magical cure, and we have to do all of the heavy lifting ourselves!

So, when all you want to do is curl up and ignore the world outside, what are you supposed to do about making the right, healthy decisions for you? It’s much more comfortable to stay where you are, compared to making a change that’s good but hard, and it’s why this post is here to help.

Know They’re Going to Be Hard

The right decisions are often hard to make, and even afterwards, you can be left thinking over whether or not you were right to make the call that you did. For example, deciding to go to bed at 10pm, rather than go on a night out with your friends, because you’ve got a long day of work ahead tomorrow is the right thing to do. 

Sure, it probably won’t feel good in the moment or for hours after. So all in all, brace yourself. The right decisions take effort, commitment, and discipline. And you might need to work on all of these. 

Find Someone Who Can Help You Fight

Another thing you can do, when everything is going wrong, is to reach out and ask for the help you need, and that takes some bravery. For example, putting yourself out there to connect with a top criminal defense attorney could be the hardest thing you’ve ever done, but it needs to be done! And of course, a lawyer is the kind of professional who knows what they’re doing you’re looking for, but they can’t help you if you don’t reach out, and they won’t be able to make a difference without your say so! 

It’s important to know your strengths and weaknesses right now, and what you’re capable of doing yourself. It’s a hard life, but it’s not a lonely one, and sometimes you need other people in your life to help make the right decisions when you’re feeling compromised. 

Staying True to Yourself

And speaking of knowing yourself, you’re going to need to stay true to yourself when everything else seems to be going wrong. Don’t let yourself fall into uncharacteristic holes, full of behaviours and actions you’d never dream of doing in a million years. Don’t let yourself swelter away without putting up a fight, especially if you’re someone who’s taken on the world before and has come out the other side stronger. 

Making the right decisions, when everything else in your life is going wrong, is a concept you’ll have to face sooner or later. So gather up the courage, reach out when you need to, and always stay true to the kind of person that you are.
