Human beings have long wondered about the extent to which we truly have free will, or whether the path we travel is pre-ordained.
Once we have set down a certain path, human nature makes it increasingly difficult to reverse course.
“Freedom” is not a binary state – either we are free, or we are not. Rather, “freedom” is a matter of degree, but while we may not be completely “free,” we still are responsible.
If we simply feel invested in our choices — even if sometimes they aren’t always “ours” — we can then own them and take responsibility for them.
