Free will is given to us. Moreover, should make us free. Unfortunately, free will does not bring freedom. It brings us only the permanent responsibility of decision-making. The most frustrating and harmful are non-accepted decisions. It often comes with the believes that we made many mistakes in the past. Remember, there are very few wrong decisions in your past. They have been the best at the time you made them. We are not always in a position to choose between good and better choice.

Issues to ask yourself.
How the others see it?
What do your family and kids have to say about that? It is good if you have support of your close familiy members. Make sure you are not the only one who holds to your interpretation as well. Have in mind that there are always at least two sides to every story. Please try to imagine how someone from outside would understand it.
Beware of the “once in a lifetime” deal and the lure of instant solutions. Don’t let the fear of »missing out« drive your decision. When you are in doubt, leave it out.
I’m not perfect.
Acknowledge that you have “blind spots.” Nobody is perfect. Therefore honestly assess your motives, both good and bad.
Do I know the pattern?
Look for patterns of behavior – “triggers.” Learn from your and other people mistakes! If you saw similiar situation or story before, please be aware that you are not exception to the rules. It might happen to you as well.
Too many counselors will not help.
Avoid having many separate conversations and be honest. Avoid listening to only the voice you like. It does not help much. Recognize the difference between “selling” and “sharing.” People are often sharing something just to sell it.
Did you recognize the warning signs? You don’t need to superstitious and paranoid, but be cautious. Live with open eyes and ears. Don’t think you are the “exception” to the rule.
Consider your steps.
Assess the potential risks and always prepare a contingency plan. Do not underestimate – other people, procedures, reactions, … Underestimating is the mother of all serious fails.
Don’t go to the edge.
Ask yourself, would this pass the “newspaper” test? If you are able to write an article in local newspaper about your decision then you are on the right way. If not, decision can be dangerous. Even more than it seems to be. Keep short accounts and do not mix too many different parts of your life together.
Are you sure, that this is the optimal decision? Ask yourself, what story could the »good man« be writing? Don’t assume that just because something is hard that it is not your »good man« will. Understand how life had uniquely gifted and resourced you. Have in mind that it is not the only way to go.
