When you chose to go to college you chose education as your path.
When you chose to go to work as an apprentice or in a trade school you chose to produce and earn as you learn.
When you chose to take a particular job you chose a path to dignity and protection for yourself and your family.
When you chose a life partner you chose to be joined and not alone in all future choices.
When you chose to have sex outside of marriage you chose accountability for the life of a child.
When you chose to accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior you chose eternal life.
Each choice and decision has a consequence. Some choose to pursue choices and freedom, others choose the simpler path of doing as they are told. This is how our lives work. The downstream outcomes arise from so many key choices. Most, if not all, successful outcomes are a consequence of time, and attitude and a series of good decisions. The chain holds the weight of it all.
Happiness flows from a personal acceptance who you are and who you want to be.
When you choose to condemn another’s choices your own path is altered. My choices are not yours. I am not you. Free will doesn’t mean free from consequences of your will. it is hard enough to carry the load of your own chain. Choosing to carry and control another’s chain is deadly and toxic.
