I have observed a typical pattern in my behavior - I have said words like No and Never with conviction but later I have happily said Yes to those things!
These usually pertain to various decisions. For instance, I was convinced that I do not want to do an MBA. I was very sure that I never wanted to marry. I was very clear in my mind that I never wanted to have children. But I did all of these things 😁
Eventually, I tend to do the opposite of what I never wanted to do. This habit has also been prevalent in the small decisions of my life. I can recall various incidents when my friends planned a weekend outing, I would blatantly say No but ended up going with them. At other instances in the past, my H would persuade me to eat outside, I would simply deny and a few moments later ended up eating in a restaurant.
But as I tread on the journey of life, I think it is time that I change this attitude. I should be thorough with the pros and cons of any decision before saying yes or no.
I do not want to end up saying No and Never to my kid and then later give in. I want to be sure that what I do is the right thing for her/him.
