    What is the hardest decision to make in life?

    In various stages of life this answer may change.

    The hardest decision one makes in life is what kind of life to have.  Using whatever guidelines you know, you have to decide to have a life of value and purpose or to have one of indulgence. You can choose to live a life of service or one that is self serving and and self centered.  Even a life seeking purpose and choosing to serve and discover your place can occasionally go off track and be self absorbed at times.  But a life that is spent only chasing what makes you "happy" and that gives nothing back, while your choice to make, seems wasteful to me.  I am looking at less days in front of me than behind and I choose to continue this journey in service, love and trying to fulfill the purpose the creator has imbedded within me.

    My hardest decision in life is when I was in the comfort of earning good money working for a company to leave and start my own business.

    It was during the time I got married for a year and planning to have children. So, it was a tough decision as it would be a struggle of survival.

    I did and I am still working for myself.

    For me, at this stage of life, leaving a job in this economy.  I have a job I do not like, in a place I dislike, for people I am not crazy about. To keep this job or give it up.  It is a hard choice.

    Today I gave it up.  A little scary.

      Im sure you made the best decison for you and those that will be affected by this decision. You will be fine. In order to gain something you sometimes have to leave something else behind. Thanks for sharing your answer.

    Selecting the (right mate) for marriage is probably one of the hardest decisions. A mistake in this area could have untold repercussions on a person's life, their family, and children's lives as well. Before merging two lives together there should be some serious introspective thinking. One has to know themself very well. (They should have shared values, wants, needs, and naturally agree on the major things in life.) Being married to the wrong person can damage your self-esteem, ruin your credit, your health, and overall outlook on life.

      Amen. Being married at 19 and going throught a rough 10 year marriage and a nasty divorce I can relate. It has made me debate whether I will ever marry again.

    Sometimes, the hardest decision to make in life is whether to continue living.

      I have to agree with you on this one because at times life can get you so down you wonder would it be easier to just end it all. Thanks for your comment.

      Have to admit I have been there, more than once. If not for faith.

    When eventually you decide that you cannot please all the people all the time. When you accept this, decisions can become easier.

    For me the toughest decision is to select my life partner. Yes, it is the hardest decision, I am not able to understand whom I should get marry? I mean what should I see in my life partner?

    The hardest decision for me was to surrender to my addiction, alcohol. By surrendering I stopped the battle of trying to compete with it, as I was no match. This gave me the ability to open my mind to a lot of things that my obsession got in the way of. But letting go and admitting defeat is not easy. Afterall, our egos tell us we can handle anything and losing is not an option.
         Nobody or no thing wants an opponent that doesn't fight back. By surrendering I stopped any more damage from happening. It's kind of what Japan did after the atom bombs. They wanted no more death and destruction so they surrendered. It worked. It ended the war. And that is what active addiction is. It's an on going war that we cannot win.

      wellspoken. Thank you for your comment. But keep in mind, trying to be too strong was a big part of my problem. By backing off of that has made my life easier.

    For me, looking back many things were hard.  The hardest was when I was getting my second divorce from the man my daughter from my first marriage called daddy and realized just how bad she was taking it and feeling abandoned like two dads didnt want her.  Having to call her biological father and having him come get her to live with him for two years so she could build a relationship with him so that she wouldn't have long term effects, or at least less of them.  To do what was best for her despite the fact I was afraid he wouldn't give her back and the fact I never had not had her.
