my mother was right in telling me that everyone has choice, constantly; everyone has choice. in every situation; there is always a decision, and that decision may define you. it is up to you whether the decision, or the choice; is a good decision or a bad decision. you decide, you choose. it's up to you how you react to a situation, it's up to you, and only you to control yourself and the situation you are involved with. it's up to you to change a habit, or create one. it's up to whether you learn from the mistake, or repeat it. after all, in reality we only have ourselves to depend on, and no one else.
