We make a choice….and…”therefore”….consequences. It has been articulated “we are the sum total of the choices we make”….therefore.
In reality we often do not think of the “therefore”. If I took the time to extrapolate a decision that lead to behaviour that subsequence results, would I be happy or sad with the consequences of that decision?
In many ways its a term a child understands the reality of more acutely than adults. You hear the mum or dad say “you did so and so, therefore….” which is often a denying of some reward.
I wonder what is the “therefore” in our lives today?
