Some people believe others can force you to do something.
But they can’t. No one can force you to do something – unless, of course, in extreme situations like having a gun to your head or similar threats.
Putting those extreme and violent situations aside, I’m mainly referring to your everyday life interactions: with your friends, family, coworkers, etc.
If you keep catching yourself saying something like: “he made me do it,” “they forced me to do it”, “I was pushed into doing this”, and similar types of sentences, you know you are in desperate need of more inner power.
You are placing the responsibility for your actions and behaviors on someone else as if you don’t have free will.
But that’s not the reality.
We, fortunately, live in a world where we have a fair amount of freedom. Your friends or family can’t force you to do something.
No one can. You and you alone decide your behaviors and actions.
So you are always free to refuse. But, of course, it often comes with consequences. Particularly if it’s related to your work or interactions. Yet, if you are being “forced” to do something so often, you might need to rethink your job or relationships. Do you really like to be pushed around? Do you want to be in a work situation where you keep being forced to do something?
When you refuse to do something, the most important consequence is that others will start to see you as an actual person with free will. Even if they don’t like it, they will know you can’t be pushed around any longer.
It might take some time – and hard work – to live according to your Will and take full responsibility for your actions and behaviors, but it’s well worth it.
