Choices and Consequences

As human beings, we are given the mantle to decipher and choose between good and evil. Everyday, we try to sense what’s right and what’s wrong and make a choice between the two.

Making a choice is one of the most difficult tasks we face. For instance, imagine you are trying to decide whether to marry that man or woman, decide whether to resign from your current job and further your education abroad or continue with the job or choose between careers, these choices can be very hard to make.

Even if one chooses to seek the advice of a loved one or ally, in the end, it is up to YOU to make the final decision. Life choices are hard to make because of the uncertainty that accompanies them.

We try to evaluate the options available to us before making a decision. We make choices based on the information at our disposal at that particular time. Life’s choices are like investments; one tries not to make a risky investment based on speculations but rather a smart one based on facts.

Choices and consequences are the central concepts affecting decision-making. To every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Every choice we make in life, whether good or bad, right or wrong, wise or foolish carries maximum consequences.

Our choices have a huge impact on our lives; they can either make or mar us. Our choices determine who and what we are in life whether in the short or long run. We are forced to live with the consequences of our choices.

However, accepting consequences of our actions can be a bitter pill to swallow for some. Rather than blame themselves, many prefer to blame others for their woes, after all, it is much easier to do so. Taking responsibility for the consequences of our choices says a lot about one’s character.

We all make choices but in the end, our choices make or mar us. No one is immune to the consequences of his/her actions.
