Self-knowledge allows easier decision making
You can always look back and say:
I may have made a mistake, but I still stand by my decision which was the best decision at the time for myself given what I knew at the time.
Understanding how you make decisions and how your emotions affect you relieves the feelings around the inevitable anxiety and regret we can feel around decision-making, especially for people with ADHD.
We all speak two languages: the language of the heart and that of the head. If they are aligned it is easy to make a decision. But if they aren’t it just depends on your mood what you think is right or wrong.
We can be deliberate with our choices and avoid falling into a life that we didn’t mean to.
