My compulsive reassurance seeking

I feel like I can’t make decisions without running them by someone else. If I’m really struggling, I tend to look for reassurance from friends and family. It means that every decision takes me much longer than it should - often exhausting my friends in the process.

At first, it was a big help - getting advice from different perspectives felt really important so that I could make the best decisions. But over time, I’ve realized how unhealthy this has become for both me and everyone around me.

Now, I’m working on letting go of the need for reassurance - especially when it comes to small decisions or things that don’t have huge consequences if they turn out wrong. This has been a tough habit to break but it’s slowly becoming easier as I create more trust in myself to make good choices.
