Respond to the following:

1) I am a strong believer in personal choice and feel most of my decisions are based on the Rights Approach. I believe everyone should have the right to make whatever choice they believe is in their best interest as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others.  Not only should people have this right to choose, as stated in the article "...

In applying this to my personal life, my wife and I recently welcomed a child. Since we both work full time, after my wife's Maternity leave we enrolled our daughter in a daycare that offered infant care. We quickly realized that this was not the option for our child and the decision was made that upon the completion of my paternity leave, I would leave my job and stay home with our daughter. This was a difficult decision to make, but one that has proven to be a great one. It's a decision that may be out of the norm for many, but was the right decision for us.

2) I found the video "How Philosophy Can Save Your Life" to be very insightful. Having suffered with depression myself I found myself intrigues, especially, by the ABC Theory of Emotions. The idea that emotions that are triggered by events are the result of our minds interpretation of the event was fascinating to me. Applying it to my own life, I look back at events where I have had negative emotions and think "Why did I interpret it this way?" or "Would someone else interpret it the same way?" I believe if someone who is battling depression can train themselves to not only recognize the trigger, but then take a moment to examine why they interpreted it a certain way, they can eventually retrain the way they interpret events all together.
