I’m stuck right now and it’s about a new career path. One side of me wants to take on the challenge and wants to not worry about the outcome, but the other side of me is worried about the outcome. So I’m stuck in the indecision paralysis and not taking action.


Hi @HeartSupport_Fans,

I can relate to your post a lot. It took me many years to find a career that I’m passionate about. I do understand people choosing money when choosing a career but you will get bored one day. Most of my cousins are rich due to working in the medical & engineer field. They will always complain about their job. Money does make people happy but not all the time in certain scenarios. It’s okay to switch careers in your lifetime. For me, I will say choose interest & challenge over money when I chose my current career that I’m attending grad school for the fall. You aren’t alone in this journey. I’m here to support what career that you pick.

I read this and instantly felt this. Indecision paralysis is so hard and I totally feel this huge empathy towards you when you say that wanting to take in something new but worrying about the outcome creates this cycle of being stuck,
It’s so incredibly hard to be anxious and fearful of the outcome. It took me a very long time to finally take that jump into a new career and now that I’m here I have people on all sides saying “why don’t you go further”. And it’s hard to explain just how hard it was to get to this point.

At first this bothered me a bit, but now I’m so proud of myself.

Maybe it’s because of this high pressure we put on ourselves to get it right or else. The flip side is feeling regret when missing the opportunities that come. It’s like we can’t allow ourselves failure as an option so the safest bet is to sit still,

I just want to hopefully encourage you that if you take this step and it doesn’t go exactly according to the way you planned, then this is not a let down or a failure. This was just an alternate option. And I know how hard it is to keep reminding yourself of that. You will still deserve to be proud of yourself no matter the outcome, but in saying that, I’m going to keep it positive and say that you may very well surprise yourself and succeed wildly!
Just know the opposite of “success” isn’t instan “failure”. You are allowed to change the narrative of how you and others talk about your journey.
“I tried this new thing and gained a new experience. It didn’t turn out the way it was originally planned, but look what i achieved”.

We are rooting for you all the way.

Indecision paralysis is a real beast. It’s hard to let ourselves seize new opportunities or walk on new pathways without projecting how things could be and worrying about the future. Somehow, anticipation helps experiencing a sense of control while facing the unknown. But then the sirens of self-doubt and anxiety can become so overwhelming as a result.

I hope you will lean towards giving yourself a chance to experience something that your heart desires regarding your career choices. Even if the results end up to be unsatisfying, you will have lived something that will contribute to your personal growth. Even the paths that we take and seem to lead to nowhere, actually inform us that this path was not for us, or that it wasn’t the right rime yet. These are still valid conclusions to have in light of new experiences.

You got this, friend! :heart:
