    I am the kind of person who overthinks things and rarely acts impulsively, especially If I’ve got an important decision to make. Some might see this as a great quality—like self-discipline, but it can also be debilitating as in losing sleep, worrying about things beyond my control. In some ways I am glad I’m this way, but in other ways I’m envious of people who are more impulsive. Since my wife is much more likely to make snap decisions, we balance each other out nicely.

    I absolutely love that quote. It’s very powerful. I’m sure I would have experienced all the same consequences as you, to be honest. No actually, I think I would change the first one to “I would never have got married”.

    P.S. I’m glad you didn’t delete your blog.

    I relate to this post 1000% This is one of my favorite posts of yours 😃 If I acted impulsively, I would absolutely be in jail for beating people with my cane who don’t wear masks or socially distance themselves around me.

      Hahaha Amy geez, so much anger inside you! lol I don’t know why but I find that super cute!
      Here’s to keeping the monsters inside us locked up 😀

    I agree with your sentiments.
    I would be broke, unemployed and possibly in prison because of my temper, too! 🤣

    I too would be divorced 10x over lol… And I’d have way more regrets! Although I am an impulsive person, thankfully none of my impulsive decisions have affected my life negatively in a huge way so I’m lucky! Unique post, great to reflect on!

      Oh bless you! Ten times? Haha that’s brilliant! So glad you put a reign on your impulsivity… isn’t it so scary to think about where life could’ve gone?

    Hahhaha I agree with your points although im not married but I think I would have broken up with my boyfriend at the moment because I always threatened that I wanted out🤣🤣
    I would also be having no friendships, broke, unemployed and purposeless.

    Oh, I actually failed in that regard. Perhaps I acted impulsively, but I actually went through the same thought process as you regarding my job and did not renew my contract. I’ll go back to pursuing fiction, but we’ll see if that turns out to be a good impulse or a bad one, lol. Anyway, thanks for this post!

      In a weird way, I’m kinda happy for you! Life is way to short to be stuck doing things you don’t enjoy. Call it impulsivity if you must, but is that necessarily a bad thing?

I'd love to read your thoughts on this!
