Those of us who have raised children understand fully that humans arrive on the planet with the endowment of Free Will. Even suckling babies have a way of letting us know what they want and when they want it.
As we get older, our understanding of the exercise of Free Will continues to develop and become more sophisticated (for most of us). Whether we do so intentionally or not, our exercise of Free Will is the vehicle we use use to shape our lives and our futures.
Sometimes, others would presume to commandeer our Free Will. They cannot - unless we give them permission to do so.
Those of us who fully embrace our Free Will enjoy lives of adventure, growth, happiness and self-actualization.
Those who relinquish their Free Will to others can best be described as victims - victims of their own demise.
