I Am a Hippie At Heart

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,921 People

    I Was Born Just A Little Too Late To Be Part Of The Movement.

    I will have to try this again when I feel a little more articulate. But to start with, I think that Hippies were way more about being libertarian than the folks today who call themselves Libertarians (or as I call them "corporate dupes").  It seems that a lot of people in this...

    Why is it so hard to respect the planet we live

    on? Everything that sustains us comes from this earth; we do not have another. Is it so hard to see that when we degrade the planet, we degrade ourselves. I live in a city and it seems we have runoff all the other wildlife so that we are only left with the rats and the...

    Peace, love, good music,

    good people, that's all I need. I don't want to live the corporate drone life, I'm full of wanderlust. I want to backpack and travel and live in amazing places doing amazing things. Bills have to be paid, but one day I'm going to write poetry and books and travel and experience...

    Since Birth

    My parents were wild hippies. They moved out to a tiny island in the pacific called Hawaii where they lived on my uncles coffee farm with no electricity. They later became teachers. I was raised on the beaches and along the streams of hawaii, such a beautiful place. It was an...

    My Hippie Ways.

    At the ripe age of 22 I find myself mellow yet opinionated... I don't mind you being gay. I don't want to eat GMO food. I prefer to eat healthy, and natural. I think medications should be a last resort after Diet and Exercise. I don't like using more water than what I need too...

    I've always been a hippie,

    I guess. Ever since I was a younger child, I've loved nature, peace, singing, a more simple way of living and living honestly and kindly. I only ever really connect with people like me. I have a deep, spiritual connection with Mother Earth and I try to take care of her as much...

    I remember my mother loved being a hippie.

    She loved the movement as well with the music and the burning of her bras. My mother went braless then and even now. My mother is 69 years old now and still goes braless. I am a hippie at heart and love going braless as well.

    Hippie That Missed The Boat

    I am a very free spirited person, who believes love is the cure; and war never solves anything.  Plus I really like Hippie fashion.  I love the bright colours and whimiscalness of it all.  I even make some of my own jewlery.  I would love to have one of those jean-shirts, but...

    I enjoy nature and I meditate a lot,

    and I do believe I am a hippie at heart because I believe all life is sacred. But I am a pretty negative person and have been trying to change that but then I realized I might as well except it instead of fight it. I have been told I am pretty mature for my age (13), and that's...

    plants are the top being on this planet.

    Why? Because they give us food and oxygen to live. for futures sake, stop logging and polluting our beautiful earth. We only get one and that's that, brothers and sisters.

    whether she or he is wearing enough clothes, let's practice cleanliness (not unnecessary high maintenance "bulldrama") and this time leave out the kind of free love that gets misconstrued as free f--ks. Go toot your own horn, mister. Show respect and live freeeeeeely. Amen.
