Was there ever a time where you only had limited of choices left... and you simply don't know what decisions to make...? We make choices everyday- some easy, some hard... extremely hard! So, what is the hardest decision you had to make?

That's a really tough one! I can't think of one off the top of my head, though I know there have been many. All I can think of is having to put our cat to sleep or leave the family dog with a friend cuz we couldnt' have pets where we were, but I was a minor on all of those so I wasn't really in on the decision so much. I'd say another example of a really hard decision though is if a family member is on life support and you have to decide whether to keep them hooked up and hope for the best or pull the plug. Decisions are a daily part of our everyday lives. Even the being on mylot or whether to respond to a discussion or not are decisions, however minor. They are absolutely everywhere! If the theory was true about there being an infinite number of alternate realities, and new ones constantly being formed, branching off from every single decision we could possibly make, that'd be insane! It'd be bad enough if you're just choosing between two things, but imagine if you had 20 choices! WOW!

20 choices... can't imagine that! Well, it's already hard enough choosing between two (or more) choices though what i find that people have the most difficulty in is knowing the options they are left with. The decision on having a family member on life support... that's a tough one. If we end up pulling the plug, does that mean we're losing hope, giving up or does it mean we're simply being realistic and are trying to move on with our life? Hmmm...

I actually think that it is harder to choose between 2 than between 20. But it is just my opinion. As for the life support question, I hope that I will never have to make this decision

Hi, snowstormz. The hardest decision that I had to make, is when I gave up school and my job just to go back home. My grandmother found out that I spent the night with a good friend of mines from work. And she got upset and told my aunt to bring me back home. Everything that I worked so hard for was all for nothing. I still have my college credits and some work experience as a Cashier. I was very hurt that I had to come back to my hometown all because of my grandmother's insecurity.

Wow, that is so sad :( i personally think that your grandmother should have a bit more faith in you though everything worked out, right?

I still havent made my hardest decision but am thinking about it. I have some reasons to quit my job, but if I do that I'll have to change my location and I have to stop my education and leave my friends. However, I am thinking it over and over and I know that when I decide, it will be the right decision. p.s. I try to write this post for the 6th time, because my internet and my PC both have made a packed against it and don't give my the chance to post it. However, I am a stubborn girl

If it took me six times to post it, imagine how long it was the first time I wrote it. Now, after finding out that you hit your head in the wall, I feel strangely comforted that I am not the only one with bad luck in this discussion

ROFL! Yeah, i wonder where all the bad luck's coming from?! Though i must say, good luck has followed since you managed to post your comment (although it's much shorter than when you've started) and I didn't end up getting a huge bump on my head! Okay... maybe there is a TINY bump but that's not the point :P

hi snowstormz yes I stood there wanting my husband to open his eyes and talk to me but he was unconscious and on a ventilator, and the doctors were asking me how long did I want them to keep on making heroic measures for him. they wanted me to give them permisssion to turn off the ventilator. in other words I was to let them kill him right them.no I could not do it. we called his sister and she said wait til the next day. well God knew what he was doing and he took my husband home an hour later.so I did not have to pull the plug at all.

Hi, Hatley! Wow... that truly is a miracle! I am still glad you held hope and have faith in God's plans. I am so glad you didn't have to pull the plug :)

The hardest decision I made so far is when I left my job and the love of my life for my parents. I was in the right age for marriage but I choose my parents and went with them to go back to my hometown after 13 years. I cant say I regret my decision but it was the hardest decisoin I made.

Hi, Maria! That really was a hard decision to make! Though I'm glad you didn't regret it and your parents should be proud for having a daughter like you :)
