The answer to this Qn is against the views of popular religions. So people committed to a religion cannot listen or evaluate my answer, leave alone understanding it.
Freewill is a boon given only to HUMANS by God. And it is meant to be used with guts. The more u use it, more power flows to u from divine. And this freewill can create both bliss and misery. When we use it wisely it brings joy, when used foolishly u invite misery. Such wise use of will is called RESPONSIBILITY. There is NO freedom with out responsibility. Without responsibility, freedom degenerates to licentiousness which eventually brings pain.
Animals have no freewill, they are tuned to nature and so nature controls them, so they have no responsibility. And so they are sinless (not my word).

The psyche consists of the faculty of intellect, the faculty of emotion, the faculty of will and desire. It is the faculty of will and desire that is the most powerful and authentic one.

It is the will and desire faculty that makes you do what you do. It is the will and desire faculty that brings you back to the thing that youve left multiple times. It is the will and desire faculty that causes you to refine yourself and everything you are doing until you achieve what youve always wanted. To make a decision based on what you really want. Make it from the will and desire faculty.
