2 Nephi Chapter 2

25 Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.
26 And the Messiah cometh in the fullness of time, that he may redeem the children of men from the fall. And because that they are redeemed from the fall they have become free forever, knowing good from evil; to act for themselves and not to be acted upon, save it be by the punishment of the law at the great and last day, according to the commandments which God hath given.
27 Wherefore, men are free according to the flesh; and all things are given them which are expedient unto man. And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil; for he seeketh that all men might be miserable like unto himself.

This is really quite random, honestly I am not a very religious person, but this right here, people take responsibility for your actions, you know right from wrong, it is your own choice, good or evil, you acted of your own free will.
Today this is a problem. Younger people will blame anyone but themselves for their own actions. Yeah I'm pretty young myself, but I was raised in a house where we were punished for what we did, not what others did, we were actually punished. I do not mean too harshly, but enough to get the point across that it was from our own actions that we received our own outcome.

I just feel like society (social media, young activist (for anything)) is trying to create this mainstream that is almost like this "Fashion Forward" statement "for the good of all people agenda" no matter what they do/believe/feel, right or wrong. (oh yeah yeah, this is my opinion, it's how I feel, your no different from me, you think freely, believe....blah blah blah.) It's almost like social Anarchy, they disagree to create a disagreement, for the fun of it, even if they do not have a fully formed opinion and it's annoying as all hell! 
I'm also not saying I know a ton about my own opinions, but I know enough to feel confident believing what I believe in. 
In my belief system there has to be a reason for anything to happen, (the way I feel, don't feel, how I act, acted upon me, etc) who knows the reason, well, anything that comes from me, I should know why I am thinking what I am thinking I control my own thoughts, and if you don't, you should be at the Dr. not reading this..those people, events, etc. that act upon you, you do not know why, what they were thinking, what the outcome would be, why the outcome is what it is, and you may never know...

Food for thought.

Oh yeah I got married
