Everywhere we turn life demands we make choices. The problem is, no one ever teaches us how to make them, much less expands the pool of possibilities we can choose from.
Though we ostensibly live in a world where we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, apparently few take it seriously.
Because going our own way isn't easy. Everyone around us is always trying to influence us, telling us what to do, how to do it, what to think, where to go, and just about anything else that pops into their minds.
Then again, we're probably doing the same to them.
No wonder individual choice, and the responsibility that goes with it, is a pipedream. Ours is a world based on conflict and control. And the name of the game is to assert our wills to get and do what we want.
