What is freedom? What is it like “to be free”?
I’ve always loved to travel, to meet people, to be independent. I’ve always wanted to be free. To do my own thing, to live my life the way I wanted to.
Nowadays being a “free spirit” is advocated in social media. It is seen as something to become or achieve. It is used as a compliment and something to admire in others.
I used to think that being free meant to not be attached. To not be attached to anyone or anything. I thought freedom was being able to do what makes me happy without being apologetic. I thought freedom was to not be trapped by people or things.
Now I am working on redefining my definition of freedom. I need to remind myself that freedom does not equal being alone. I can still be free when people love me. And I can love and be free.
To be free is to not chase after the things that make you happy. To be free is to embrace all you have in front of you. To be grateful and in peace with whatever comes your way. To be free is to allow love to be present. To be allow yourself to be vulnerable and unapologetic about it. To be free is to make decisions considering others with compassion instead of focusing only on the self.
At the moment this is my definition of freedom. Whats yours?
