Did you make some bad choices?

I am pretty sure that NO one in their entire lives has ever said, "WOW I never made a bad decision."

We all have because we make mistakes.

The important thing is to grow from them and not to let that define who we are and especially NOT to dwell on them. #beenthere

If you're struggling from the results of the bad choices you made yesterday, last week, or even years ago talk to someone. Whether it's a professional counselor, friend, family member or even a pet (the best therapy) it's important to take care of your mental well-being.

So go get yourself back out there, you have got this!!

What are some GOOD choices you've made this year?

@ Denah, I get nervous about an interview because that is how bad I want that job, so yes it is ok to be nervous, we are people with feelings, and if that is the first emotion that comes out then so be it, but why do you feel like you have no confidence? Ok I'm not going to ask you what happened to make you feel this way, the only thing I can say is, whatever made you this way, you have to turn it around, don't let yourself get stuck in a rut, and you have to be a power woman when it comes down to stuff like this, because no one can give you back your confidence except for God and you, and the strength that you put into your confidence, I think you have confidence because you are on a social media site, letting everyone know that you don't confidence when it takes a lot of confidence to do that.:)) You have more going on then you think you do, you just have to let it out and if you make some mistakes along the way that's alright because we are all imperfect and we make mistakes, but the thing is you can't keep making them same mistakes over and over again. One thing you need to know is if you believe in God, then you know that you have more than what meets the eye, ask him to help you pull out all the stops, and I guarantee you Denah, you won't be nervous, your confidence will go through the roof and you will get the job you want, you know why, because having faith in God, is going to help you with whatever you got going on, you just have to talk to him, pray to him, and then say this three times, and you have to mean it, "Satan You A Lie, Not Today!!!" He will flee from you and go to somebody else, but he will try to come back, but that's when you be ready for him and kick his butt to the curb, your going to be fine, give this situation to GOD THE ALMIGHTY!!! :))

I've made plenty of bad decisions that I thought at the time was a good idea. Most of the time they were poor haircut choices or styles of clothing I thought I could pull off.

All of life is a series of choices. From a purely Satrean existentialism standpoint, there are no "good" choices or "bad" choices, because they are all bad non-choices that the evil of the world thrusts upon you. Who you are as a human being is how you handle this hell of life...now aside from the philosophy lesson, I suppose I could dwell on the fact that I've turned down or quit jobs several times that went on to have giant successful IPOs that would have made me 10s of $millions in stock options. In most cases I had the information I needed to make the "correct" decision, but other factors were more important to me at the time, so I went with that rather than the money. I really only think about it much when I am pretty broke, and remember that I turned down like $150million in my lifetime! How dumb can you get?!!!?!!
