Decision!

New Delhi, India
August 27, 2016 7:55am CST
The thought of being living without her scares me to pieces. I love my Mother without her I can't even imagine my life. She is suffering from a disease, I need lots of money for her treatment. Don't know how to arrange it, though something is running in my mind for this but not sure. I just can't seem to sort through this one. What do you do when faced with a big decision to which you don’t know the answer? Do you opt for the middle road that marginally meets everyone’s needs? Do you sacrifice your needs for others? Do you randomly pick an option, and simply hope for the best? Do you pick what seems to be the most logical, even though you are not 100% sure? Do you put off the decision making process and hope everything will sort itself out eventually? How do you sort through one of life’s greatest decisions?

You can only do what you think is right at the time. Sometimes we make good decisions and sometimes we may wish we had done something different. You should not beat yourself up though because what ever decision you make you do it with the best intention.

@ModernDayWriter Sometimes you have to compromise and do a bit of both!

Prayer always helps, don't give in to fear. I don't know how to encourage you but it's best not to give up since it's easy to do that these days. She needs you now more than ever.

Life does have a way of sorting things out but it's not always the way we want it to. I've made good and bad decisions in my life but when it comes to family I always try to do the right thing.

@ModernDayWriter I think when it comes to the important stuff I have usually been right but not always. I'm sure you will find a way .. the answer just usually comes to me after lots of soul searching. Close your eyes and ask for the answer. It may not come right away but eventually you will just know what you have to do.

Let the time solve this problem, when we can't make a decision we should ask for help or else we should leave it to the time... Be strong. Everything will be ok.

The best solution is to do what we feel that is the best thing to do. It's the only way not to have regrets in the future.

I hope your mother will feel better soon. I understand it is difficult in your end and I hope you stay strong. I will include you and your mother in my prayers. Deciding what to do when you have problems like this is hard but trust your judgment and hopefully everything will turn out for the best

I have been known to sacrifice my own needs for the needs of the other person, Yogesh! IDK if this is the right thing that we should do or if this is only what I have always chosen to do. I can't know that. I believe you will choose the option that makes the most sense to you, my friend. I hope it is also the option that is also the best one for your mother, too. I will keep you and your mother in my thoughts!

It's probably not possible to ever be 100% sure, but I would pick the most logical, as long as it also feels right. Good luck with your situation!

Making a decision is tough. Unfortunately no one can do it for you but you. You have to figure out what is in the best interest of you and the person you want to help. See if you can get help from others to help you out with the decision you make. You can put it off but that is also a decision you make. It is tougher when family is involved - you want to do so much to help but may be limited by what you can do. you just have to do what you can.

I'm the type that relies a lot on people's advice and opinion. So I would say pray and consult the ones whom I trust. At the end of the day it's you yourself who know what the best decision is, no matter how hard it can be.
