Blog Five: Choices, Choices

Imagine, living in a society where all choices are made for you. Your future is already planned out for you and you don’t have to worry about anything. The rules that follow, though, are set strict so that no one makes the wrong choices. Would you rather live in that society or would you rather live in a society where you have the freedom to make your choices? If I had to choose, I would definitely, without a doubt, choose the society where I could make my own choices.


I believe that having the freedom to make your own choices is better than having your choices made for you because you get to experience the good outcomes, you get to plan your future out, and you get to live the life you want to have. Although it sounds like a good thing, there can be some negative outcomes as well. When you get to make your own choices, there will be a time where you make a bad one. You are responsible for that choice and you have to face the negative consequences. When your choices are made for you, you don’t have to worry about that. A positive from making bad choices, though, is that you learn from your mistakes. It shapes you into a better person.
