Choice is free and forced

Every choice is a forced choice. It is also a free choice.
We must be forced to choose, at which point it seems we have no choice, but that moment is a culmination of previous choices and external pressures (the frame in which we exist).
Once realized, we cannot unsee the potential to reject or reframe our choice, which is the choice: to choose how to see your choices in a new light.
