    I loved reading this!
    I am awful with making decisions when it comes to where to go to eat, what to order and so forth. I went on a date last week actually and simply forgot how bad I was at making such decisions yet when it comes to the more important/professional decisions, I am SO much better.

    I’ve been told that I can be surprisingly blunt but the same people who’ve told me that really appreciate my honesty so it must be a good thing? I used to be super shy and therefore not very upfront with my feelings but nowadays, I try to get it out as much as possible even if it means through text. I can’t stand beating around the bush anymore.

      Thank you!
      I am the worst person to make date decisions! Even with friends when they ask to meet up, I am clueless on where to go.
      I think honesty is a great thing. I always tell my close friends to tell me if I’ve upset or annoyed them, so we can solve the issue and move on. It’s better than keeping feelings in and possibly holding resentment.

      Thank you Yara! I would say one thing I have really practicised this year is establishing boundaries. Rather than ignoring my feelings to avoid conflict, I’ve stuck up for myself or admitted my thoughts. You’re right about it making you go crazy if you try to mask it!
