Why decisions hurt (like hell).

Decisions hurt — they hurt because they’re only necessary when we want two of something but can only have one.

The word decision stems from the latin word decidere — which literally mean to cut off.

When you’re deciding, you’re not just gaining something, you’re also taking something away. You’re removing it. You’re eliminating it. You’re cutting it off.

Decisions hurt like hell because perhaps we lose a part of ourselves when we make them — and perhaps that’s why none of us are whole.
