I often hear people say that they had no choice when they were faced with a specific situation but when we really examine it, I believe there is always a choice in anything we do. The thing is any choice comes with consequences whether may be good and bad and therefore we avoid some choices because we do not like the consequences of what may happen by choosing it.
To give a extreme example, I can murder anyone I want so long I can physically do it, there is little stopping me. But the consequences are that I am most likely be arrested and spend many years in Prison, which makes it a harder choice but it is still indeed a choice. The thing is it is about not seeing ourselves as victims of any situation but understand we make the choices and have taken control of our destiny by understanding what could have happened if we had made other choices.
There is always a choice and it is so important to remember this important fact.
