Recently I have been thinking a lot about freedom, and what it means to be free in a society but also what it means to be individually free. What does it mean to be free individually? For me, I strive to be free from a lot of societal norms that I feel have and have had a negative effect on me in the past. I feel like I have been conditioned since I was young to be fearful, to be scared of things, such as the future, uncertainty, etc. Over the past couple of years, fortunately, I began to change my entire mindset on what life means and what it means to live life freely.
