At certain times, I'm one of those people who want to forestall making decisions. Sometimes, it's because the more time you spend on it, the more you know about the situation. At other times, it's simply because I don't know which decision to make. That's not to say that there will always be right decisions, merely options for you to choose from. What's painful for some people is the fact that when you finally make that decision, other avenues of opportunity are closed. We're not necessarily afraid of the consequences of our actions, but afraid of the possibilities and potential that are no longer there. A bachelor, for example, might fear commitment not because he doesn't enjoy the company of the person he is courting, but rather he is afraid of all the other people he won't be able to propose to but might meet in the future.
