SOLC 9 of 31: Exhausting decisions

I’m tired.

Tired of making decisions.

Tired of making decisions that please some and anger others.

Tired of making decisions that have no right or wrong answer, just an answer.

In the world of an educator, we are making decisions all day, every hour, every minute, every second.  Each decision has a possible reaction: positive or negative.  You never know how that will play out until you do it.  The variables are numerous: who is affected, what’s the prior history, 1st time? 2nd time?  The outcomes are differentiated based on the variables.  But there is a judgment there, always.  Someone may not agree with you.  For a people pleaser, that’s hard to swallow.  Some will, and that feels ok.  But it’s the not knowing or the knowing that no matter what decision you make, someone may not feel validated.

On some days, when I get home, even making a decision about dinner is too much to decide.  My brain hurts, the headache radiates and I can’t possibly make any more decisions.

Fortunately, the sun sets and a new day arrives.  Unfortunately, it’s full of more decisions to make. Sigh.

    I like the way each line increased at the beginning. Decisions are draining, especially when it affects many lives. I understand making a decision about dinner is almost too much some days. So what’s for dinner? :-]
