Maybe we don’t completely have free will. Our emotions, place of birth, thoughts, and biological make up are not of our choice. But within those rules of life, there are options. The will to push through those boundaries can bring life to unimaginable potential. But potential can only be ignited through sacrifice, suffering, and meaning. Without any of those, what we have is eventually lost, and life will still have its suffering and sacrifice for others to observe. If it’s meaningless or meaningful, is up to us to decide.
