Self-knowledge allows easier decision making

Clear and independent thought allows you to make easier decisions since you are able to trust yourself to not succumb to irrational thoughts.

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.
