Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that.

So here's this weeks question: Do you make your own decisions, or let others make them for you?
Many of you know me and you know I make my own decisions. I don't mind your input though. I've often been on the wrong side of something and had others point out possibilities that I hadn't thought of that altered my decision.

  1. I prefer to make my own decisions. I'm not afraid to ask for others opinions before I do though

  3. That depends on what the decisions are. Hubby makes a lot of the family decisions.

  4. I hate it when people try to influence me too much. I like to think all 'what ifs' out first then pick the right path for me.

  5. I always make my own decisions that pertain to me but when it deals with family and home I make sure that my wife & I get together and we decide in some manner. After 40 years of marriage why brake something that is working so well.
    Have a wonderful Wednesday Sandee.

  9. Being an only child and I didn't get married until I was 27 I'm pretty comfortable making my own decisions. They may not always be right but I've learned to live with that as well.

    1. I've made a few wrong ones myself. :)

  10. I can, and have, done both.
    Important things, affecting more than myself, deserve, at minimum, consultation.

    1. I agree Skip. We shouldn't make decisions that affect other folks. :)

  12. This is a great question Sandee, and you posted it at the right time for me. I make my own hard fought decisions. It makes me sad when people, either by circumstance, exhaustion, or lack of a strong support system feel they must yield to what others think is best for them. -I'm speaking about people who are of sound mind.-

    You're the best, and I miss you.

    Huge hugs, and love.

    1. Everyone has an opinion and often they don't fit what we want to do.

  13. I make my own decisions. I usually collate information from others, but the ultimate decision is mine to make whether I live to regret it or not.

  14. I was single a good long time before marrying Bill ... so I got quite used to making my own decisions. Your question makes me realize that I need to thank Bill for being such a kind and understanding guy ... because by reflex I still tend to make my own decisions ... before remembering that perhaps I should have consulted my husband first. :D Great question, Sandee ... and I hope you have a marvelous day my friend! ♥♥♥

  20. By and large I make my own decisions. Now that doesn't mean I don't ask for input. I'm a gosh darn independent woman.

  25. If it's a decision that'll effect just me, I'll make it but might ask for opinions. If it's something that doesn't matter what happens, I'll let someone else make it but I do pipe up if it turns into something I don't like!

    Hope you had a great day Sandee! Scritches to Little Bit!

  26. I have almost always made my own decicions. That hasn't always worked out so well. ;-)

    My mother tells me that as the eldest of eight kids I started causing trouble and leading my sister into mischef at a very young age. We clippety-clopped down the street in the wee hours of dawn in motherdear's dresses and high heels when we were about 4 and 2. We got busted by a neighbor who called my mother. LOL.

    big hugs Sandee! xoxo

  28. sometimes in the past I have been far too impulsive/quick to make a decision. I have learned to take my time ( when possible) before making a decision. And of course there are decisions the two of us have to make together. Big hugs right back at you!
