The Twelfth Sin Is Believing You Don’t Have A Choice. You hear people say that all the time, “I don’t have a choice.” The truth is, we always have a choice. When we say we don’t have a choice, what we are really saying is that we don’t like any of the choices available to us. Never say you don’t have a choice, like you are a helpless victim who is not in control of your life. The more aware you are of the choices you have in each situation, the better you will get at choosing the ones that will take you where you want to go.
