I assert without reservations that freedom for me is absolute and attainable only by me. My freedom is personal and not debatable and I will not allow books or theories to define it for me.
My freedom is my possession and could not be owned by anyone NOT UNLESS I share it willingly out of being selfless.
If my stand on freedom will be viewed by others as being selfish, for their failure to think outside the box, then I don't mind. I will not be free if I have to conform to their personal expectations.
And I can only truly say that I am free when I know that my life is defined by me. Sometimes Freedom for me is not also being independent for I can find freedom in sharing my life.
Freedom for me anchors not on other people's acceptance of my stand but on how I accept myself of who I really am and who I want to be.
