Recently I've been struggling with questions about free will. Someone started talking about how we don't actually have free will etc which made me anxious and then I looked up a bunch of theories about it which I KNOW I shouldn't have done, but did anyway. I started freaking out about how we are who we are only because of our experiences, how if I was born somewhere else or to some other person, I would be a completely different person. I don't know why this is freaking me out so much. Does free will exist? Are we only a product of our upbringings and experiences? Agh.
