How much do people make their own decisions?

I commented on an article at New Scientist a bit back called, "You say sin, I say disease" -

Here's my comment -

More and more, I'm starting to come to the awful conclusion that most people have very little control over how their lives go. They maybe have a few key decision points in their life - but maybe not all that many.

And the rest is autopilot. They watch some subset of the new movies, new TV programs, websites they stumble across. They eat whatever's more or less served near them and eaten by people they associate with. They pick the political party that matches their friends and relatives, or no party, or maybe they pick up a book that has an emotional impact on them and swear loyalty to that. Maybe.

I hate this idea, because it seems to subtly advocate for totalitarianism, which I've been against my whole life. But then there's nagging voice that says, "well, just ban all the food that's unhealthy, and people will eat better..." - but we know where that road leads.

Im improving socially....

On Charlie Brown

Ok guys I know I havent posted lately because I had been very busy looking for a job plus with my new 'night' school schedule its hectic.... or im just also lazy... I have thoughts to start a blog page however suddenly it dissapears like 'poof' gone from my head. Its hard to stick to one idea no?

I wish SETT had a Mobile APP so that I could just right what I think of immediately and post it for all to see...or else it would 'poof' hehe

You know since before I have never been aware I was so socially awkward and just damn plain 'weird'. Its only now that I did realize it and I need to improve this. Is being awkward a bad thing? or is it good? Should people go with the mainstream always? Be 'social'? I dont know but I think it depends on who you are. I think im not as quiet as I used to be I just know that its not 'me' or who I really am. If your really quiet and its part of your personality then stick to it. No ones asking you to change who you are I think you can be quiet and have 'other' awesome talents like being smart or being excessively quirky. I learned this a bit when I watched an anime called 'Attack On titan' and every character there is awesome in their own qualities even if some people think its 'weird'.. its not it just makes them different and thats what makes them awesome... I would rather have a room of different people rather than just all the samey boring predictable people... That just me.

With this perspective in mind. Ive grown more confident . No one can tell me who Im supposed to be.. I am who I am and with that removal of fear of thinking what people judge me as is hopefully gone.
