If anything moves anything else, where does one come in?

Our background is not ours, our environment is not fully ours.

Even the our inner force to change what we do and what is around us is a chain reaction from the outside ourselves.

So where does one come in?

When we do the right thing because we’ve thought about it for long and hard or when we do something regrettable because we acted on a whim, we deem ourselves responsible.

When we influence people to do things, good or bad, we believe they have the power over themselves and choose what’s right for them.

Is it true though? How much power do we have over ourselves? How much power do we have over others?

Where does one come in? Over anything else that is not themselves?
