Today’s daily prompt is called Second Opinion and it asks;
What are some (or one) of the things about which you usually don’t trust your own judgment, and need someone’s else’s confirmation?
Always a dangerous game that. The more you second guess yourself and rely on someone’s opinion or input to help you make a decision the less you trust your own opinion or judgement meaning you seek out someone’s else’s input or opinion. Which like I said means you trust your own opinion and judgement less leading to a horrible vicious cycle until you are a nervous wreck that can’t make a decision by yourself and need to get the advice and opinion of a team of people on matters as trivial on what you should eat for breakfast.
Trust your own opinion and judgement. Only you know how you truly feel about something, you are the only one who can truly see things from your perspective.
That said when I was at uni I would constantly double check with friends what time and what room/building a certain lecture was in. My worst nightmare was to always walk into a room thinking it’s my lecture, sit down, get my stuff out, and then discover it’s not my lecture.
And for those of you who think that doesn’t happen it does. My friend got confused over what time our lecture started, but got the right room, and so showed up an hour early, sat down along one of the benches, people came in and sat down so he was stuck on the bench. It was only when the lecture started he realised it wasn’t his lecture. What do you do? Ask half a dozen people either side of you to get so you can leave because you got the wrong time? Or do you quietly sit there and hope no one notices? He went with the second option, which is what I would do. But things like that are why I would always double check.
