What should I do? / What would you do in my place?

There are some moments in life where you really need to “stop and think”. Armies of difficulties or huge boredom, impossible choices or stupid auto-illusions : you need help, obviously!

You can ask your best friend or a specialist, your sister or anyone :

What should I do?

This is a good question, and you’ll probably listen carefully…

But there’s another way to ask, which is :

What would you do if you were in my place?

And this is a totally different question. You should, then, listen closer. Your partner will maybe ask… “Really?”. Then the answer won’t be the same…

You can ask the two questions in a row, asking for both.

Then you can follow, or not, but the second question requires your attention : your interlocutor will probably watch your next steps. It’s a question of trust, an intimate process.

Thanks for reading!
