People Share Their Biggest 'Screw It, I'm Doing It' Moments

Sometimes we gotta just do what we gotta do. IN life throwing caution to the wind is the only true way to live. Often, it's just like Nike says... "JUST DO IT!" Many therapists will tell you this is one of the best ways to grow and fly.

Redditor /A-Classic-Blunder wanted to know about the moments when everyone decided it was time to do what was necessary by asking..... What was your biggest "Screw it I'm doing this moment?"


"Send"

Giphy

Hitting "send" on an email I wrote my husband's mistress. thenletskeepdancing

She hesitated.

Wasn't sure if a girl I've been chasing for months was giving me signals.

She needed to do something in my city and wanted to stay the night. I said sure but didn't have more than one bed, so to avoid being creepy I offered to sleep on the couch.

She hesitated. I offered to both stay in the bed, and she nodded.

Cue two hours of lying nervously on my side trying not to come off as a predator while trying to make smalltalk


Eventually I realized we had been cuddling for like an hour and had progressively been getting friendlier and touchier, and at this point I'm just trying to weigh the possibilities she's just unreasonably friendly vs. actually into me and doing this while trying to be a conversation partner is slowly melting my dumb brain.

I figure, I've been single long enough. I lifted her chin and kissed her, giving her plenty of time to recoil and pull away or stop me.

She didn't. We've only been together for a bit over 6 months but she makes me happy. My goal is to make her happy.FoolsintheThunder

Harry Forever...

Skipping days during a work conference to go to Disney World and Universal. No way in hell was I getting a free pass to Florida and not going to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

It was worth every second. SnyperPrincess

Sober and hydrated.....

Called my wife and told her I had a drinking problem.

Hard phone call to make I tell you what.

Of course she already knew, most did, but getting it out there verbally was hard. Real hard.

I'd also like to thank Topo Chico bubbly water for satisfying my "need to drink cold bubbly drinks" and "need to be holding a beverage" urges.

Sober and hydrated, 1.5 years. campoanywhere

20/20....

Giphy

A few days ago I had the opportunity to get Lasik. I just had to call out of work. This upset my boss but forget it 4 days later and I'm already 20/20!!! rachel226

Best decision I ever made.

Was going through some domestic violence BS and wasn't allowed to leave the home for months at a time. They tried to choke me to death, yelled at me a lot, etc. I can't remember all of it. My grandmother had died and I'm pretty sure it was the intent to kill me and get my part of the inheritance. The inheritance money finally came in after about six months of this treatment, and while the other person took his half and went on vacation, I took my half and bought a Greyhound ticket and got out of there. Best decision I ever made. TheEggRollCommandsIt

Bought a sailboat.

Bought a sailboat. Quit a decent paying job that I hated. Sail from New York to the Caribbean where I hung out for a year then sold the boat back in Florida and then spent the next five months hiking the Appalachian trail. Went back to work for a year and now I'm currently backpacking through South East Asia for the next 6 months. bigmommashome

Roommates Needed...

Asking my now wife if I could call her back the next night after she called looking for a roommate who had moved out. We had talked for a couple of hours that night. She said yes, I called her back the next night. We've been together now 17 years, and got married two months ago. FloydDangerBarberFloydDangerBarber

Going Solo....

Deciding to go on a solo backpacking trip when i was 18 years old. i'm a worrier and not very good at handling stressful situations, and at the time i was also super introverted. that trip really helped me realize that i'm capable of a lot more than i think. SadLazyDope

PlentyOfFish......

Giphy

A few years ago I met a guy on PlentyOfFish (yeah I know, make fun of me later lol) and we were talking for about a month before he asked me out on a little lunch date.

Went on the date, had a great time and afterwords he asked me if I wanted to go back to his place. Mind you, I was raised very conservatively and also to be essentially scared as hell of guys.

Against all of my better judgment, I agreed and we walked back to his place. We had a good time, watched a little bit of TV, and after a couple of hours he walked me back to the diner, I gave me a kiss on the cheek, and we parted ways.

We were just married on August 31st of this year :) VioletViolence93

Love or money?

An age old question.

Ideally, you wouldn't have to decide between the two.

In a perfect world, you would be able to find the true love of your life and be incredibly wealthy all at once.

But, as the saying goes, you can't have everything.

Though if faced with having to choose between the two, people might have a different idea of what the obvious answer would be.

Redditor lulinghayaw was curious how people would decide when faced with this decision, leading them to ask:

"Genuine, true love or 5 million dollars? Why?"

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"
