Ask yourself, “What advice would you give to a family member in your situation?”
Imagine that your parent, spouse, or child were in the same situation. What advice would you give them? Take that advice and apply it to yourself.
I used this advice when I decided to get my wisdom teeth out. I also thought about it when choosing to buy an insulin pump.
We often have trouble making decisions when they are about ourselves. Thinking about a loved one can help us to see the situation from a different perspective. I’ve been able to overcome fear and make good decisions by thinking this way.
