On the choices we make

In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility. — Eleanor Roosevelt

In every society, there is a common practice of staying in unhappy situations and blaming some event, person or ourselves for what we have and don’t have. We have forgotten that we have the power to choose every moment of the day. Many of our choices are more about controlling another person in an effort to get them to change rather than focusing on what we have: our power to change.

We can be an authority over ourselves and our situation without needing to force others to change. We can change what is within our power to change, which is often more than what most people realise.

We can choose to change jobs if our relationship with a boss is toxic, to deepen a relationship with our spouse if we are disconnecting and to change careers if unfulfilled. We do not have to stay stuck.
