My personal definition of freedom is the ability to act based on my opinion without getting into trouble. It is the ability to represent myself as I see myself to be, not having to hide or disguise who I am in order to pursue happiness, fulfillment, and growth. It is the power of free self-expression. Personal freedom is one of my top three values. Of course, there are boundaries to freedom. My actions should not hurt others or restrict their personal freedoms. This way, I can have the personal autonomy I need while respecting the freedom of those around me. I believe there is always a path for mutual free expression, when we respect one another.

I believe that freedom allows me to pray and worship to the One and Only, God. Freedom allows me to make my own decisions and experience failure during that time. Freedom allows me to be free from any worries or problems that I have. It frees everybody from things that are chaining us down in life. It gives everybody a chance to start over with things they’ve made mistakes with in their life and live a better lifestyle than before. With freedom, we have the power of knowing that you can believe in whatever you want without having to worry about what others think.

Having freedom also means we have a responsibility of maintaining a sense of freedom in our lives. We all have a way and a feeling of how we want to approach our lives and in order for us to go about doing that, we have to focus on surrendering more and controlling less. I believe that freedom is always there and an option for people to take; the thing holding some people back is if they choose to plug into it and really go for it. I believe that freedom is a choice. Freedom can be pushed along and it’s welcomed into our lives when we love, accept, and respect everybody else in our lives. We cannot give what we do not have. I feel that a sense of freedom is taken away when we push past the feeling to stop and slow down as well as when we judge other people. When we judge others, we are trying to box them in and judge them.

So what freedom means to me? Freedom is really important to me because once we give ourselves permission to be free, we are able to open up our hearts and accept what really is. We are able to feel like we are being guided along and we can have that adventure. We are able to make mistakes in our life in order to learn more about life. Freedom is accepting what really is important in life and embracing every moment that happens.
