I have commitment problems – this is a known fact and I am working through it. I used to believe that this issue only extended to my relationships with other people. After only one month of dating a girl I would leave on a trip and never call back. After a year at a new job I would get sick of the people and the office and begin a new job search. My therapist has many theories on why this could be, beginning with the time in high school when my prom date ditched me for Troy Hernandez. Bad memories.
ANYWAY, last night I ordered a great meal from Mooncake Foods. After some internal debate I went for the Sliced Steak Plate. About 10 minutes after I placed my order, I realized that it was really the Miso-Glazed Salmon that I really wanted. Unfortunately I was stuck. In the future, when my commitment issues get in the way of insignificant life decisions like this, what should I do?
I can understand your problem with deciding what to eat. Sometimes there’s just too much good food and it’s hard to make a decision. But we’d like to help you work through your issues.
In the future, right before you submit your order, close your eyes and visualize the food arriving at your apartment, fresh and hot. Imagine the first bite and think about how satisfying it will be. If that works out, you’re going to enjoy your order, but if not, you should delete your dish right then and there and return to the menu for a second selection. Visualize again and, only when you’re ready, click submit. You have the power.
