On choosing limitlessly

"If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise."
Robert Fritz

Either it leads to compromise or for some depression... si?

It's a good thinky quote. It reminds me of the root of all sociological discussion: Do actors (people) really have complete agency (freedom), or is it all merely an illusion of freedom set and bound by structure (media, social norm, law, government, religion, et al.)?

I think we have to really REALLY stretch to be able to allow ourselves choices that aren't some sort of compromise on some level.

Given half a chance it's not what we cannot do that scares us, it is indeed what we COULD do that frightens the living daylights out of us

so it's all round plain easier to compromise

(only it never is...not really.....)
