Today I wonder if I was to do something differently how my life would be different. Would it have really been that much different or would it have ended up being what it is now, just perhaps in a different way ? Do we really control our lives or do we just like to believe that we do, so that we have a piece of mind and control over at least one single thing in our lives? Even so, can we truly say we have control? We might believe it, we might believe in a higher power as well, but what if at the end of the day we are just puppets, being used and abused by some unknown force….can we truly be in control….free…ourselves ?
I think that life is just cause and effect. So yes, if you did something differently at some point you could have turned out a completely different person. What you do now affects what will happen tomorrow, etc. I don’t think we are puppets controlled by an unknown force… it seems far fetched to me. So yeah, we are in control of our own actions. I think the deeper question is whether we have free will or not. I would say yes.
