Why do I find it so hard to make decisions?

Why does it take me such a long time to make decisions?
I’ll spend forever weighing out the pros and cons, making lists on paper, on my laptop just to make sure I make the right choice. I always fear making the wrong choice

You've answered your own question with that final sentence: "I always fear making the wrong choice".

Many people are able to make decisions more quickly because they have no fear of making the wrong decision. If their decision turns out to have been wrong, they'll just handle the consequences.
