What is Freedom

Freedom or otherwise known as reliefeness in your mind has become a major topic in lots of wise individuals and common people in the society. Although It is known as one of the hardest social problems in nowadays in the world. Some people believe that being alone is the best way to be free or experience your freedom but as I believe that freedom is not something that you can achieve by leaving your job or being alone on your own.

According to Jim Morrison, “The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.”

The most important point in his Quote is that to be free, you have to be yourself and the process can be different from one human being to another but It is the first step to find out who you really are. However It can be a difficult road for some of you as for my self.

I live in a small village in Sri Lanka and the life in a poor village such as mine is not something as we can call pleasant. I was a different person since my childhood and I never fit in with the society, I have passed all the examinations but never stayed in one job for at lease 2 years. I had two best friends when I was at middle school and the only time I stayed happy or felt free when I was with them but the time has passed, friends found their own path while I struggle with my self and still I’m searching for my Freedom or my Happiness on my own.

Some people assume that money can be the key to find freedom or otherwise know as “money can buy freedom” and because of that lots of people work as much as hard they can on their younger ages hoping that they’ll earn enough money to be free when they get old regardless of not knowing their true peace or freedom in their minds. However even after making tons of money they still look for what they genuinely desire to be happy and sometimes that thing they desire can never be bought even with tons of money.

Freedom can be explained by many ways but the whole point is about the Peacefulness in your mind and for some, It can be a job or workplace and for some It can be Traveling ,vacation and resting. Although It is very important to explore your mind and find out your freedom at early age rather that after getting old, and make a plan to achieve It at a certain age to experience it while you can, because every human being get old at certain age and after that you will regret your missed opportunities.
