D is for Decidophobia #atozchallenge

I once knew a girl whose name was Sue
She always struggled in deciding what to do
What if she chose one
And the other was more fun?
It’d then be a decision she’d forever rue

(c) Sanch @ Living my Imperfect Life

Note: Decidophobia is the fear of making decisions.

    Indecisive, thy name is Arpita. Does that make me any less that others? totally related to this limerick.

      Haha…Nope, doesn’t make you any less than anyone…just that you are indecisive and it can be frustrating for others. My partner is like that and it can get on my nerves sometimes. πŸ˜›

    Maybe I do have a bit of Decidophobia.. and the limericks are too good.

      I think you and several others do Lata! Seems quite a common phobia πŸ˜‰

    Good one S! I think this is a fear many of us have in some form or the other. While, I make decisions quick, I do realize that some by their impact are simple to make but some are life-altering. Great pick indeed!

      I agree Parul. I used to be a lot more fearful but now I’m ok. My partner though is so indecisive sometimes that it drives me nuts!

    I used to be a bit like that. Now I am almost too quick to make decisions.

    I am quick in taking decisions. But still the thought of the selecting other options keeps lingering in my mind.

      Sometimes I reckon it’s the Fear of Missing Out that prevents us from making decisions. At other times, it’s the fear of letting people down! πŸ™‚

    Hehe, I can relate to this! I definitely have decidophobia. Strangely it doesn’t usually strike when I’ve got to make a big decision (like whether or not to buy a new car) but instead at less crucial moments (like when I need to pick which Easter Egg I want)!

    You know, after reading this post, I feel I sometimes have this phobia. πŸ™ When it’s too hard to actually decide something and you want to end up with both sides of the coin.

    Great one !
