I face similar situations sometimes during shopping, sometimes because I realise that more often than not I “wont have a choice”.
I’ve had quite a few choice-less scenarios in my life when I just accept the things offered to me on a platter without even thinking twice about it. And there can never be a choice to regret either! “You have made all your choices!” Oracle enlightened Neo in movie “The Matrix”.
I grumble about the choice-less situations, but choices often land me into great levels of confusion. Choice is always accompanied with advantages/compromises. If those are not clear, there is greater problem. Life is a series of logic gates where you continuously evaluate and decide yes or no, one teacher spoke philosophy in a computer class. “To be or not to be?” Shakespeare could not have put it more aptly.
“Specs is just an analogy/sample“, I wish I could tell her.
