The paradox of choice

There is an old saying.. “The one who has many choices, is an oppressed person”. Is it so?.. With so many alternatives  and consuming questions – what to eat, what to dress, where to go and so on, we sometimes find ourselves paralyzed when we have to take a decision and I think that many aspects reduce to the statement that “Life is a matter of choice”.

Why choice makes people miserable?

1. Regret and anticipated regret

2. Opportunity

3. Escalation of expectations

4. Self-blame.

If you have low expectations, at one moment you might be surprised! Maybe this really is the secret of  happiness…
