One’s inability to come to a decision can create a never-ending cycle of turmoil. This is especially true when we need to make decisions at important inflexion points and that may significantly alter the course we’re on. Many of us don’t even realise the extent of the turmoil that we’re in, as it may not even be a conscious thought. However, the turmoil could quite easily manifest in different areas in our lives, how we interact with others and how our bodies respond to it.
It is incumbent on each of us to constantly evaluate whether our moral compass is still pointing to our true north. We need to continually ask ourselves whether our actions are informed by our own beliefs that we carefully considered, before we concluded that they are fit to be used in our moral compass. How certain are we that we are not just believing what we are because those around us believe it? Or, that we are believing what we are because those who we have crowned with a halo believe it? Applying one’s own mind is paramount if we were to avoid the temptation of outsourcing our morality to others.
