What does freedom mean to you? Throughout my years, freedom has had many faces. Some of my earlier impressions of freedom involved the absence of physical bondage, but now freedom is so much more than that.
The ability to make a decision and not feel like I’ve let my loved ones or those individuals looking up to me down, that’s freedom.
The acceptance of my emotions, regardless of how different they may be from my ideal self, that’s freedom.
The ability to separate my beliefs from those who’ve had great influence over me, that’s freedom.
In many ways, I’m not free, I have yet to experience internal freedom. I live in a free state and I am no one’s prisoner…but at the core, I’m a prisoner to myself
I don’t allow myself to live, truly live and enjoy life in the process.
I am often so busy trying to be this or that, achieve a through z, or live up to other people’s expectations of me that I fail to be free.
Freedom, a powerful word with incredible imagery
I don’t strive for perfection, I strive for freedom.
