We need to be in the right headspace when making decisions. I don’t say this in a glib way. The matter of being in the “right state of mind” is highly debatable and differs depending on the person.
But one thing is for sure: we can’t make good, rational decisions when we’re emotionally overwhelmed and not thinking straight.
We might think it’s the right decision in that moment because everything feels like it’s going wrong. But after some time, when we’re in a better headspace, we will most likely look back and regret the decisions that we made rashly when we weren’t thinking straight.
What are some of the best decisions you’ve made in your life? How would you describe how you felt when you made those?
