I Am a Free Spirit

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 38,905 People

    Being a free spirit is life's key to self worth,

    I think. One day when I was feeling really hopeless, I made a long list of all the things that made me happy. Some of it was as simple as reading a book while curling up in a warm blanket. At the end of writing this list, I realized that I was stopping myself from remembering...

    I am a free spirit engaged in human society,

    who feels trapped sometimes. I want to break free and fly away. I can't stand conformity. I don't recognize the authority of people and institutions. I am a quiet rebel, aware that I am also a spirit. A free spirit.

    or atleast a spirit that longs to be free.

    I am known to get lost in a view by water. I will lose track of time when I am in nature. been known to spend hours on a swing or wading along a shore. once my spirit is in nature, it grows and wants to be free. ..

    Maybe this is why school was a difficult place

    for me, I felt enclosed and imprisoned. And if someone tries to control me in a relationship, I have to break free and will use all my strength to do so; conversely I can end up feeling enslaved and unable to think anymore, unable to function independently. But where I can't be...

    I don't think being a free spirit has to

    necessarily mean that one is frivolous and care-free with no regard to appropriateness. I think it varies from person to person but for me in translates to that I don't feel it dire that I conform each part of myself anymore to appease others by sacrificing my truth for theirs...

    Freedom takes time: Being a free spirit takes

    many changed and challenged views. 1. To let go of the Church View of Christ. 2. To let go that one has to have a Priest/Church to know GOD. 3. To let people BE who see life very different to me. 4. To love people as they are (3 gay relatives) 5. To walk away from toxic people...

    Ok. I am. I hope I have left stereotypes behind.

    I hope. I say I hope because stereotypes are deeply ingrained. And I cannot guarantee they are not still there. I just hope not.

    I do not conform to the molds

    that others set before me. I always feel that there is more to life than just trying to fit in to the groups or types that are around me. I'd rather stand out as a loner than belong to a group that does not accept me for the person that I am.

    You can really be yourself on here.

    .. I'm feeling really sad at the moment. Low and lonely. I met someone new in the new year. A great guy he is; he wants to be in a serious relationship, his ready to have kids and settle down. His much older than me by 16 years but we get along so well I ignore the fact that I...

    A philosophical mind❀️ Not conforming to

    the mediocre system, rather questioning it. Question is, how free do you want to be?

    To grow we have to push through the dirt.

    And some people don't want you to grow because it reminds them that they are small. But don't let small people hold you back from experiencing the sun.

    I like the wind can make things dance around

    aimlessly, or shred things into a bunch of pieces. Your charm, your wit, they are no match for nature's wrath. Nor the beauty it leaves you feeling. I'm free and nothing can control me.

    For the most part, being free is a good thing.

    We do not let ourselves get weighed down by negativity and we are always looking forward to our next adventure. However, there are times that being usually random and whimsical can make me lose my significant other. He is really patient and understanding with me, and I'm afraid...

    Mostly I mean I have a lot of time to spare by

    stating it. With this amount of time, I can do something I like,something I want and sometimes something I have to. Time is ticking and I think I will not be as free as I used to be. But I am glad that i am still free for now.
