“Nothing is in?my control”, “My manager calls all the shots”, “I just have to do as my parents / spouse / children say”, “I can’t even decide for myself”, “I don’t have freedom to do what I want to do”,
We keep hearing these and?perhaps saying too most of these things everyday.
Do we live free? A large percentage of us strive for independence and freedom. Who from? We don?t know yet. All that we know is ?we need freedom to do what we want?. ?We need financial independence?. We keep working day after day, struggling, getting frustrated?and fighting.
One thing we all know, but perhaps deny, is the fact that it is difficult to stay free. Click To Tweet That’s?one of the reasons, we all look at wrong directions and keep ourselves busy and not work towards being free.
What part of life, other than self, is truly under our control? None. What is under our control then? Ourselves and our thoughts. Who controls us? Ourselves. Then, what are we complaining?about?and?working really hard towards this so-called freedom and independence? People who realized this simple fact, did not look out for freedom. They took control of themselves and their freedom, worked on self without bothering about external elements, did what they wanted to do and became very successful and joyful individuals. You name it.
A lot others felt like guilty people?who were released from jail after decades of punishment. They cant handle their freedom, because they don?t know what to do with it. So, they let others control their freedom and hence the life.
Escaping is easy. Next time, when you say that you don?t have freedom to do what you want, ask yourself ?who decides my freedom?? If the answer is not ?I decide my freedom?, then please be aware that you are not living, perhaps just existing. Its not wrong to let the external factors control our life. Be aware, that it?s the choice you made to give your freedom to someone or something else. Don?t crib, fight, struggle. Make peace with yourself.
Easier said than done??Nope. Leave us a comment and we?can discuss on why and how is it easier done than said. I am not overly simplifying this. All I am saying is
There is a way to live-free and the answer is within you
Have fun with life and do let me know what you think.
