I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t believe love is a choice because if it were, many of us might make Ã¢â‚¬Å“smarterÃ¢â‚¬Â choices. Mr. Yoda certainly wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the Ã¢â‚¬Å“easiestÃ¢â‚¬Â choice of who to be with but as I saw it he was my only choice. Once I fell in love with him I feel I lost all control of it.
Did I have control over moving in with him? Yes. Did I have control over making a life with him? Certainly. Did I have control over falling in love with him? No, because I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t believe I have control over my feelings.
While I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t feel I have control over my feelings I do have control over my actions. I am responsible for all my actions even if I wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t in control of the feelings that brought on the actions. I might have an intense feeling to pull my shirt off in public but I know betterÃ¢â‚¬Â¦at least now I do.
So, when I say love isn’t a choice I mean we have no control over our emotions but we have control over how we respond to those emotions; there is a big difference between emotion and action in my book.
