She made me slap her…he forced me to lie…like if she actually took his hand and slammed it on her face. Funny when we think of it, but kind of scary when we think about the lack of accountability, responsibility for one’s action, the blaming game. It is also saying that we do not have control over our actions. Of course actions can be the consequences of our emotions and our emotions are sometimes slipping away from our control. However, should we live our life expecting that we do not have choices? Should we stand for no individual freedom?
Because we are talking about freedom here! Freedom is not necessarily about doing what we want
when we want regardless of consequences. Freedom is about choices. It is about happiness! I suggest a good read with Barry Schwartz the “Paradox of Choice.”
