Every day, whether you like it or not, you have to make choices for your future self. We all do. Whether it's about how you spend your money and time, or how to handle unexpected circumstances in your life, making tough decisions is something that is bound to happen.
According to Dr. Travis Bradberry, expert and author on emotional intelligence, the most successful people seek outside counsel when faced with a major decision. "Their perspectives help you weigh your options more objectively and to spot your subjective or irrational tendencies," said Bradberry.
If you want to truly be empowered to make the best choices for your future, educate yourself on all your options, and seek out counsel. Relying solely on your own instincts may move you in a less empowering direction.
We meet with many women who are at the precipice of a life-changing decision. They are pregnant and struggling with what they should do next. What is the best decision for their future? And how will that decision affect them now?
Some are strongly considering an abortion. What matters most at that decision-making moment is HER life today and tomorrow. That’s understandable. With the stakes so high, she may not clearly see the lifetime impact that comes from removing that unborn life inside of her.
Having heard the mantra over and over again: “My body. My Choice,” many women have confused that to mean “My Body. My Only Choice is Abortion.”
If women only look to corporations, politicians, and activists for education on the value of human life, it’s understandable that there is so much confusion. An abortion sounds better than raising a baby in a toxic relationship, or needing to drop out of college, or being a single mother, or any of the host of other concerns pregnant women face.
We see “My body. My Choice” differently.
A woman should value her body. Absolutely.
And, precisely because the stakes are so high, she should also be fully educated and equipped about ALL of her choices.
