Life is all about choices. Every second we make a choice. Either we are choosing to do something or not do something. Our choices literally shape our life—such is the power of choice. Come to think of it, our lives are nothing but an aggregate of all the choices we have made so far, isn’t it? You must have heard dialogues like “I didn’t have a choice”, “I had no option” in movies, where then the protagonist slowly turns around, deepens the eye contact, takes a pause, and slowly says in his baritone voice “You always have a choice”.
And I kinda concur. It is true. We do have a choice in every situation of our lives, right from the small ones like which shoes to wear or which car to drive, all the way to the big ones like who to marry and what to choose as your career. At times one may feel like he’s trapped to do something the way they have been told to but too often it’s just our minds making up rules picked up to soothe or fit in the society. Well, guess what, being trapped and believing in the orthodox and outdated notions is again a choice.
