Deepak Chopra Quote


Whenever I make a choice, I will ask myself two questions: “What are the consequences of this choice that I’m making?” and “Will this choice bring fulfillment and happiness to me and also to those who are affected by this choice?”~Deepak Chopra

One of the horrible “perks” (insert sarcasm) of Bipolar Disorder AND Borderline Personality Disorder, is impulse. Serious and horrible impulsive acts that destroy and leave a wake of destruction behind them. So this quote is something we should all take to heart. We all need to seriously learn to ‘pause’ and think before making any big decision… actually, big and small decisions, but more important, the big ones. How many of you have destroyed your life by making decisions without thinking them through?? I would bet we all have done this on some level. I know I certainly have… and these decisions hurt not only me, but the ones I love most. With a heavy heart, I have to learn from these mistakes and stop looking back at that closed door.

Please, my friends, ALWAYS take time to think long and hard instead of doing something impulsive. I learned the hard way and have so many regrets… I wish I could just push ‘rewind’ and start over with this new-found 20/20 vision.

But I can’t… so I move forward slowly with one foot in front of the other.

  1. Impulse decisions completely wrecked my life a few years ago, and I still struggle to not make the same mistakes again and again. This is a really great quote, thank you for sharing. It’s definitely going to get posted somewhere in the house where I will remember it.


    1. Amy, I am this quote speaks to you! Impulsive decisions that result in something bad are hard to get over but we can… and with practice we can prevent future mistakes. You are not alone… ♥


  2. hi! I have done some impulsive things when I am manic but in general I am not at all an impulsive person – in fact I am the opposite of that and am very boring and predictable. What strikes me also is that even people who are blessed to not be burdened with a label sometimes do impulsive things and they might be looked upon as being “fun people”. Is there a rule book out there which says thou shalt not be impulsive – only under special circumstances? How rigid do we have to be?


    1. That is something to think about and you are right…. some people who are impulsive are considered “fun” whereas it is a destructive thing for others. I now take a lot of time to think about something… so I know that I am not being impulsive.


I love to hear from my fellow "Muses"... please share your thoughts!
