Is it possible that when you write the story of your life, you don't let anyone else hold the pen?It's fair to say that when a person writes the story of his/her life, then one should not allow anyone else to hold the pen. The particular quote is very motivating, but sadly in the lives of the maximum number of people, some other person holds the pen.
In my opinion, it is easier said than done. Any person has to be selfish if he /she wants to hold the pen and write the story of one's own life. An extremely dutiful person would not forge ahead keeping only personal benefit in mind.
Is it possible to hold the pen and write the story of one's own life? It is not only about possibility and probability, but the point is, will it be ethical? Kindly state your viewpoint.
