Finally, an excuse for my procrastination… When I’m with my two best girlfriends and we’re trying to plan something the first priority is giving the planning responsibility to someone else or choose the option that eliminates choosing (“um, my mom will decide all of that…”). If we try to force ourselves to make choices inevitably someone gets a little snappy or we all start trying to slink away. On the flip side, my brain seems to always start going to big existentialist questions right before bed and I want to try and solve all my marital, spiritual, and professional problems right before my head hits the hay and it drives my husband bonkers as he can’t handle so much deciding and musing at the end of the day. I feel like this article helped me understand myself and the world around me so much more after reading it. I put it in my “justify my existence” pile.
