However, there are times when knowing all your options is essential. Although it can be difficult to know all the options, do your research, ask questions and be willing to take your time. The bigger the impact the choice will have on your life, the more you owe it to yourself to find out what all your options are.
One of the most important things you can do is to obtain help with your big life choices. Discuss what you are planning to do with a coach, a mentor, a friend or family member, and ask if there is anything you are overlooking. Share the choices you think you have with your advisor, and ask if that person sees other options of which you are unaware. Because your experience is limited to your own life, you might be overlooking an option you didn't know existed. When I graduated from high school, I didn't realize going to college was an option. I didn't know about student loans and scholarship assistance. I figured that since I didn't have the money to pay for college, I couldn't go. That simply wasn't true, but I wasn't aware of the options that were available. Make sure you do your research, get outside support and be aware of everything that is available to you. You might be surprised at the options you have.
You always have choices. Unfortunately, you might not always be aware of all the choices available to you. Make sure you do your research, ask others for their input and take your time. We all have many resources available. Take the time and effort to use those resources so that you can make the best choice possible, based on the options you know.
