We do things either out of obligations or with conscious choice. Though falling into obligation also is our choice, it is not the wiser route.
When we do anything out of obligation, it doesn’t last long, or we don’t do it as expected because we don’t feel it the right thing to do.
But when we do things with our conscious choice, we tend to stick to it for the longest time because our heart permits it.
Further, when we do things under any obligation, we are more prone to revolt and finally do things that we don’t want to do in a calmer state of mind.
Though both are the choices, pick the one you will stick to for a longer period of time.
