如何治癒選擇困難症 | How to Cure Your Decidophobia

繼續雙語閱讀|Read in Mandarin & English

你有選擇困難症嗎?要如何治癒選擇困難症呢?在我們進入實際的治療練習以前,我們先簡單診斷自己是否有選擇困難症。
How do you know if you suffer from Decidophobia and how to cure it? Before we get into the step by step guidance and how to really follow through the treatment in practice, let’s do a quick diagnosis first.

選擇困難症的症狀有以下幾個:一、做決定讓你感到焦慮。你會開始緊張,手掌冒汗、心跳加速,有時候甚至會有呼吸困難、口乾舌燥等反應;二、你希望別人可以替你做決定。這裡指的不是一般的接納別人的建議,你是真心渴望別人提供你想法,自己則是沒有主見;三、連很簡單、很小的事情你都能猶豫不決,因為每個決定對你來說都事關重大;四、你的生活品質因為你的猶豫不決大打折扣,你因為擔心做出錯的選擇,所以你的情緒總是被恐懼宰割;五、你沒發現猶豫不決本身其實就是一件令你最害怕的事--因為你「選擇」猶豫不決。
There are a few signs show that you might have Decidophobia, 1) making decisions make you panic. You feel anxious, your palms get sweaty and your heart pounds harder. You even sometimes experience shortness of breath, dry mouth and more, 2) you want other people to make decisions for you. Not just welcoming people’s input but you desire their opinions and you can’t bear making choices yourself, 3) you even avoid the simplest decisions regardless how minor they are because every decision is deemed insurmountable to you, 4) your quality of life suffers because of your indecisiveness and you can’t enjoy because your emotions are paralyzed due to the fear of making the wrong choice, and 5) you don’t understand that refusing to make a decision is actually doing what you fear the most – to make a decision to not to decide!

如果上述提到的症狀你都不陌生、甚至感同身受,那你很有可能患有選擇困難症,不過你也不需要太擔心,因為今天我會給你一些很受用的建議,以一次買一個甜甜圈的節奏,幫助你一步一步克服選擇困難症。
If you find the above-mentioned descriptions familiar, identifiable and super relatable then you might have Decidophobia. Don’t worry though, today we will offer some really sweet suggestion to help overcome this disorder little by little, one donut at a time.

每天出門不知道要穿什麼顏色或許讓你很煩躁,但你要知道,猶豫要選哪一個口味的甜甜圈時,你臉上糾結的表情比什麼都可愛,這個選擇的過程不是痛苦的,反而讓人充滿期待感和幸福感,這也是為什麼我們把購買甜甜圈作為我們的治療練習。
Struggling to make up your mind about which color to wear might not be the most pleasant thing to do in the world however struggling with which flavor of donuts to try gives you the cutest facial expression you could have in your entire life, it is not bittersweet, it is pure privilege and joy all right. And that is the exact reason we use buying donuts as our treatment.

今天我要介紹的是個最能治癒你選擇困難症的地方-都柏林的滾甜甜圈(The Rolling Donut;直譯)。滾甜甜圈大概是都柏林最好吃的甜甜圈之一,都柏林有很多好吃的甜甜圈,很多地方都不錯,但是滾甜甜圈會讓人想一再地回去,滾甜甜圈在都柏林有好幾個分店,但是我建議你可以在單身漢街上(Bachelors Walk)實踐你的買甜甜圈練習。在你出發之前,你可以先上網看看他們都賣了什麼口味,給自己一點心理建設,大致先熟悉店裡面有哪些每天新鮮現做的酸麵團甜甜圈。滾甜甜圈是愛爾蘭的本土品牌,1978 年就已經成立了,一開始還只是一個在歐康納街上的小亭子,現在卻是享譽都柏林的必吃甜點。
Today I will introduce you the best place to cure your indecisiveness – The Rolling Donut in Dublin. The Rolling Donut is easily one of the best donuts I’ve tried in Dublin. You know names and you know places to get donuts in Dublin however the Rolling Donut is one of those you will always want to fall back to. They have a few branches in Dublin but I’d suggest you carry out the practice at the shop on the Bachelors Walk. Before you go, you can take a look at all the donuts they have to offer on-line to mentally prepare yourself what you’re going to face in the store, a wide variety of freshly-made-in-the-morning-sourdough donuts. The Rolling Donut is an Irish family owned business since 1978 and it started out with a little donut kiosk on O’Connel Street and now it is one of the most renown and celebrated donuts in the city of Dublin.

為什麼我覺得滾甜甜圈可以幫助你治癒選擇困難症呢?原因很多,其中一個是因為它太好吃了。
Why would I say that it is the best place to cure Decidophobia? Because of many reasons and because it is just so good.

這間店有透明的玻璃落地窗,所以在你走進去之前,你可以好好地檢視所有的口味。不要緊張,這時候我們還沒進到店裡,這將會是一個很好的體驗,也沒有人會催你,所以不要害怕。如果你已經知道你想選哪一個口味,那就是直接走進去買一個甜甜圈,如果你還是不知道要選什麼,你可以請店員推薦,然後信任他們的推薦,他們推薦什麼你就買什麼。這裡店員都很有友善,他們很清楚客人點甜甜圈口味時的掙扎,他們也會很有耐心地為你介紹口味。
They have a glass window which allows you to look at all the options properly before you step in the store. Don’t feel nervous just yet, it is going to be a sweet experience and no one’s rushing you. Now if you already know which one you want, go ahead and order a donut, yet if you still have no idea, ask the clerk to make a recommendation and just trust them with it and take whatever they suggest. The staff are very kind and patient, they are all very experienced in offering people suggestion and recognizing their agony in choosing the right donuts.

如果他們推薦一個以上的口味呢?怎麼辦?這個問題問得很好,這種情況的確可能會出現,我建議你可以讓店員就只推薦一個口味,或者請他們給你最受歡迎的那個口味,如果店員問你問題,回答「好」就對了,一切都會沒事的。你看,雖然你沒有主動選擇,但你還是選擇了讓別人替你選擇,這就是個很好的開始。
“What if they suggest me more than one flavor?" Well, good question and a very legit one and my answer is either you make them suggest only one flavor or you tell them just give you the most popular flavor. If they ask you any question, just say yes because everything will just be fine. And now even though you don’t make a decision you have had someone make the choice for you and that my friend I’d say it is a wonderful step forward.

也有賣喝的 | Drinks Menu

如果你還是沒辦法決定要買一個還是三個甜甜圈,我建議你就直接買六個一盒裝的,然後讓店員幫你隨機選口味。
If you still can’t decide either you want one donut or 3 donuts, I’d say go for their 6 donut box and just let them pick out flavors for you.

我和先生(先生是很資深的甜甜圈買家)去了幾次滾甜甜圈,前後買了 9 個甜甜圈共 8 種口味,為的就是要幫助你選擇,你可以參考我們的選擇,或是在購買甜甜圈時,直接買我們喜歡的幾種口味。
Me and my husband, a very experienced donut-consumer, went to the Rolling Donut a few times and we picked out as many as 9 donuts, 8 flavors, to showcase you our choices. You can use our experience as a reference for your donut-buying practice or you can simply order the ones we like.

接下來我會帶你利用圖片做練習,進一步認識幾個甜甜圈的模樣和口味,這樣輪到你選口味時,你也比較知道該怎麼應對。

茉莉夢露 | Molly Malone

茉莉夢露 | 香濃的蘋果肉桂內餡,外層是香草糖霜和餅乾碎屑。
Molly Malone:  A scrumptious apple & cinnamon filling topped with a vanilla glaze & biscuit crumble.

一口咬下去就是滿滿的蘋果內餡,感覺像是在吃蘋果派一樣,酸甜中帶著肉桂的香味。
When you bite into Molly Malone your taste bud is instantly hit by the juicy apple sauce and it feels like you’re eating an apple pie! The flavor is sweet and a bit of sour with the lovely fragrance of cinnamon.

紅絲絨 | Red Velvet

紅絲絨 | 粉紅色的酸麵團,內餡是美味的香草奶油乳酪,外層是覆盆莓口味的巧克力甘納許,最後撒上紅絲絨蛋糕屑。
Red Velvet: A soft pink sourdough base filled with a delicious vanilla cream cheese, raspberry chocolate ganache topped with red velvet soil. 

內餡味道雖然濃郁,但是質地清爽、滑順,不過這個甜甜圈的紅絲絨蛋糕味道不明顯,如果眼睛閉著會以為在吃巧克力口味的甜甜圈,覆盆莓的味道也不是很突出。
The filling is light but very smooth and flavorful. However you don’t taste too much red velvet and if you close your eyes it feels more like a chocolate donut since the raspberry is only hinted in the flavor.

咖啡戀人 | Coffee lover

咖啡戀人 | 滑順的咖啡核桃內餡,外層是咖啡口味的糖霜和碎核桃。
Coffee lover: A delicious silky smooth coffee & walnut filling finished with chopped walnuts on a rich coffee glaze. 

咖啡的味道不會太重,非常剛好,內餡很濃郁、滑順,咖啡和核桃的組合讓這個甜甜圈吃起來很有層次,這是我們最喜歡的口味之一。
The coffee flavor is not overwhelming but just the right amount, the filling is so rich and smooth. The combination of coffee and walnut just gives this donut a bit more layer. This is one of our favorites.

忘了拍照的兩個口味(因為不是我們的最愛):巧克力椹果碎片、百利甜酒。
The other two flavors I forgot to take pictures, because they were not our favorites: Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch & Baileys Bliss.

巧克力椹果碎片| 內餡是美味濃郁的椹果可可醬,外層則是巧克力糖霜搭配烘烤過的椹果碎。
Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch: A delicious & delectable treat filled with nutella and topped with chocolate & roasted hazelnut. 

如果你很喜歡巧克力,真的很喜歡的那種,那你就會喜歡這個口味,因為每一口咬下去都是滿滿的椹果可可醬啊~這個甜甜圈不是我跟先生的最愛,真的太巧克力了~
If you love chocolate, like really really love it then you’d enjoy this one because the nutella is going to burst into your mouth. This is one of our least favorite because it is way too chocolatey to us.

百利甜酒 | 百利甜酒風味的奶油內餡,搭配濃郁的香草糖霜,每一口都是享受。
Baileys Bliss: A baileys infused cream filling paired with a rich vanilla glaze will leave you feeling blissful.

如果你喜歡百利甜酒那種甜膩,那你一定不能錯過這個口味奢華的甜甜圈。第一口咬下去我們很喜歡,因為味道濃郁、風味獨特,但是吃到後來有點太重口,而且甜酒味會愈來愈重,所以不是我們的最愛。
If you like the decadent flavor of Baileys then you will have to try this luxurious donut. We enjoyed it the first bite for the flavor was rich and different but we didn’t love it till the end for it is super rich and you can really taste the Baileys.

檸檬酪 | 清爽、滋味滿分的夏日最佳選擇,內餡是濃郁滑順的檸檬蛋黃醬,外層則是簡單的糖粉。

如果你不喜歡太甜的口味,就選這個檸檬酪吧!檸檬蛋黃醬的酸度夠,同時又滑順、香濃,滋味非常棒,這也是我們最喜歡的甜甜圈之一。
If you are not a big fan of merely sweet flavor then this one is your piece of donut. The lemon curd filling packs acidity and is smooth and delightful. One of our favorite donuts of the day.


現在你對滾甜甜圈的口味不陌生了,我們就可以開始練習買甜甜圈。
Now you’ve learned a thing or two about the Rolling Donut, it is time to put theory into practice.

跟著以下的步驟練習:

  1. 拜訪滾甜甜圈。
  2. 走進店裡之前深呼吸,默念你要點口味。
  3. 排隊,很重要,這是文明社會的表現。
  4. 輪到你的時候,冷靜但堅定地告訴店員你要的口味。
  5. 付錢,這是完成練習很重要的一個步驟。
  6. 觀察你的甜甜圈,然後大大地咬一口,眼睛閉著慢慢地咀嚼,充分感受甜甜圈的各種滋味。
  7. 你已經成功完成買甜甜圈的練習了!

Follow the following steps:

  1. Go to the Rolling Donut.
  2. Take a deep breath before you step into the shop and repeat the donut flavor(s) you want to order in your mind.
  3. Queue. It is very important and polite to queue in a modern civilized society.
  4. When it is your turn, tell the staff the flavor you want with a calm and firm voice.
  5. Pay your donuts, which is very essential in completing this practice.
  6. Observe your donut(s) and give it a big bite, chew with your eyes closed and feel the dough in your mouth and the many flavors.
  7. You have now completed the donut-buying practice.

你應該馬上就能知道自己喜不喜歡你選的口味,如果你喜歡的話,恭喜你,下次你還可以再選一樣的口味,不用怕失望,也可以選新的口味,因為就算你不喜歡新口味,下下次還是可以再選你喜歡的這個;如果你不喜歡的話,恭喜你,你成功地為下一次的選擇剔除了一個選項,你不僅有機會再練習一次,還可以選新口味。
Instinctively you’d know if you like the flavor or not. If you like the flavor you chose, congratulations, next time you can choose the same donut and you know you won’t be let down or you can go for something else because you know you can always go back to the one you like. If you don’t like the flavor you chose, congratulations, you have successfully ruled out one thing you don’t like and you have one less options next time. What’s more you get to practice again and try something new.

以後如果你面臨困難的選擇、深感不知所措,記得那天你去了滾甜甜圈,買了甜甜圈,記得所有的決定和選擇都可以是好的決定和選擇,因為你認真想過了,一旦你做出了決定,用心去體驗、去感受,然後判斷自己喜不喜歡這個決定,如果不喜歡的話,不代表你做錯決定了,那只是意味著那個決定不適合你,而你總是有權力再次做出其他選擇。
Next time, if you’re faced with a situation that goes far beyond your typical bout with intense indecisiveness, remember this Rolling Donut experience you’ve had. Remember that all decisions can be good decisions because you put so much effort into making one. And once you made the decision, experience it fully and mindfully and learn about your true feelings from within. If you don’t like the decision you made that doesn’t make it a bad one. It only means it doesn’t suit you and you can always opt for something else in the future. You always have alternatives.

如果你能夠做出決定,你就可以得到一個甜甜圈。
If you make a decision, you get a donut.

這篇文章雖然有點惡搞,但是我覺得滾甜甜圈真的好吃,會讓人等不及再回去試試看其他口味。他們家的甜甜圈最棒的就是麵團,新鮮現做的酸麵團甜甜圈,質地很鬆軟、輕盈,而且口感不會乾癟無味,吃得出新鮮的味道。除了麵團本身好吃以外,口味很多也很加分,有的甜甜圈店口味也很多,但是都太甜,吃到最後都差不多,滾甜甜圈真的就有做出獨特的風味和差別,或許你不會每種口味都喜歡,但你一定會吃到你最喜歡的一個。
Kidding aside, I really enjoy the Rolling Donut and can’t wait to go back and try some other flavors. The best part of their donuts is the dough, the freshly made sourdough which is really fluffy and tender and it is not stale at all. You can really taste the freshness. Besides the dough, I like the wide variety of their donut options. Some donut stores have as many options however they might all taste just overly sweet and in the end all the same while Rolling donut exhibits and presents the flavors in each donuts. You may not like all the flavors but you’d definitely find your favorite.

如果我們把滾甜甜圈和其他甜甜圈店比的話,像是甜甜圈先生、迴力標甜甜圈(尤其),價錢一樣,但是滾甜甜圈的品質吃得出來比較好,所以如果你到都柏林玩,我很建議你試試看滾甜甜圈的甜甜圈。
If you compare the Rolling Donut to other Donut brands such as Mr. Donut, and especially Boomerang Donuts, the price is the same yet the quality really stands out. So I’d recommend you to try the Rolling Donut if you’re in Dublin.
