Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But none of us choose or control our own history, even if we happen to produce more serotonin in response to certain stimulii - for genetic reasons.

The point at which 'willpower' (whatever that is - but I suspect it is a Learned Behaviour Disorder) is exercised, is preceded by a chaotic personal history. 'Willpower' has to be seen in that context. It is not something plucked out of thin air or applied by a secret switch.

One can change one's life, but only if that life is ready to be changed - like the psychologists lightbulb.

You can't be me, I'm taken
