Don't be outspoken. Don't be reserved.

“When I’m at a crossroad, I try to release myself from the idea of there being a right or wrong decision. You just make a decision, and part of if that decision is good or bad is how you own that decision afterward. If I walk around all day wishing I’d done something else, that act of wishing I had done something else makes that decision I’ve already made worse. You have to own the decision you make and worry less about if the decision you made was good or bad. The choice you make to be happy with your decision affects how happy you actually are with that decision." –Minh-Anh N.
