Sometimes, You Can’t Help It

I was reading this morning about synaptic neurotransmitters and the connections that your brain makes on the cellular level.  I’m no neuro scientist and honestly, they couldn’t even tell you exactly what happens, but evidently – repeated behavior and experience can possibly change the connections in your brain.  Check out – The Physiology of Identity Formation.

One of the possible implications of this neuroplasticity of the brain is that sometimes, you can’t help your behavior.  Sometimes you can’t help how you react because of the ways that your synapse fire.  Sometimes, you can’t help it – because your brain makes you do it.
