Whether you're changing careers, moving, or ending or beginning a relationship, making a big decision about your life can be scary, and you might even be hesitant to choose until you're entirely sure. Luckily, you don't always have to be confident about every choice, as there are a number of hard decisions to make in life that you can make even when you're not 100 percent sure. It's tempting to want every affirmation possible that we are making the right decision, but sometimes, taking the leap is the only way to truly know if what you are doing is right for you.
"We like to think that decisions are easy — black or white, yes or no, good or bad— but it’s rarely that simple," life coach Desiree Wiercyski tells Bustle. "When going through the process of deciding, a lot of people get caught up waiting for some sign or occurrence that a decision is 'right' and often times those signs never come. So if it isn’t an outright, directly harmful decision then it’s OK to go for it and see what happens. There are very few things in life you cannot recover from, and you never know — it could be amazing."
Despite any self-doubt you may have, sometimes, you just have to go for it. Here are seven major life decisions experts say it's OK to make, even if you're not completely sure.
