Before you nitpick your way into oblivion, take a step back and reassess the entire situation. Ask yourself some questions:
1. Will this decision matter in five years? I think you’ll agree that the color of the awning on the house is not nearly as important as making sure the foundation of the house is not damaged. Each decision we make ultimately affects some part of our lives, but it is important to prioritize.
2. Is the situation non-negotiable? We all have things that we refuse to compromise on. Sometimes this is necessary, but other times we realize there really is no reason we should not try to reach a happy medium.
3. Are you ready for the changes to come? Change is at times quite difficult to accept. Sometimes, we unknowingly construct roadblocks in our own path so we will not have to endure change. We don’t make the time, we feign ignorance, and we refuse to share.
4. Have you Consulted God? What did He have to say about it?
