Welcome back to week 35 of Sunday Poser
Happy Independence Day to my American readers!
My question this week is related to Independence Day in the US;
What does independence means to you?
We are lucky that we are born free. We really don’t appreciate the true value of independence! Having said that, for me, the word independence means the freedom to be myself.
Not everyone is or can be their true selves. There are restrictions of society, expectations of people we love, and our self-imposed limitations that stop us from being true to ourselves.
For me, freedom or independence means to follow my heart’s desires as I want. To be free to follow my faith as I want to and to not be beholden to anyone in ways that restrict my freedom. I gained this freedom when I reached the age of maturity. The age when I felt that living my life on my own terms was more important than trying to please people around me. As they say “you cannot please all the people all the time”, so why waste your life trying.
This was what freedom or independence means to me. What about you?
