Great advice on exploring more in therapy. It is admirable that you have accomplished so much despite this 'handicap', if that is the correct word?

I always felt that I was indecisive and also I second guess myself tremendously. Once I finally make a decision I will question it over and over again.

I went into therapy for depression, since I was crying, thought I had no purpose in life, hated myself, and was stuck not experiencing any happiness or joy in life.
Indecisiveness was a small part of the depression, but not even worth mentioning at that time. It was there but hidden under the sadness and misery of depression. The unfortunate thing is that this therapist never treated me with medications and I really needed them more I can tell you.. Finally I insisited that I wanted to try medication and I was referred to a psychiatrist. With medication, I was finally able to start living again. The indecisiveness is still there but I am comfortable with it as part of me, as long as I can make some important decisions in life.

So, I agree that going for therapy to deal with the symptom of indecisiveness is the first step. Medication be needed if therapy alone is not enough.

Have you thought that you might be depressed? Sometimes it can manifest itself in less than obvious ways.

Good luck.
