my dad has a theory. he says, the only true freedom in this life, is financial freedom. i see his point. i mean, it's said for example, that we have freedom of speech. but we don't. you cannot run into a crowded theater and yell, "fire!" just because you feel like it. there are consequences if someone was to god forbid get hurt. in the work place, not all language is acceptable. hate speech, and the results thereof, could even land you in prison. but financial freedom; being debt free, having the funds to live comfortably, to live where you'd like, to come and go as you please, that is a freedom.
of course though, i had a counter argument. i told my dad, that another freedom that exists. the most incredible of all freedoms (in my humble opinion), is freedom from the judgments of others.
selflove is considered a revolutionary act. why? because many if not most individuals, live a fear-based life; a life of conformity. they blindly believe what they are taught, they don't fly (figuratively and shit for my dad, literally lol) for fear of falling, they don't disagree with loved ones for fear they'll disappoint them, they don't pursue their truest dreams for fear of failing, they don't speak for fear of mockery, or love for fear of being hurt, and so on.
imagine being so free, imagine loving yourself and your choices so much so, that you, the real you, is impenetrable. that you, or at least your choices, are completely unaffected by the opinions and limitations that others try to place upon you.
my point in all this? yeah, i may be wild. but oh my, am i free 🍃🌕
