I Am Free

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 431 People

    I am no longer shackled by shame,

    guilt, or fear. I am proud of who I am, who I was, and who I am becoming. I feel as though I'm getting a second chance to live, a chance to know now what I didn't know then, a chance to live freely as me. The future excites me. I am strong, I am courageous, I am beautiful in...

    I'm actually, finally free.

    My mind and thoughts had been plagued with my heart break, for how I longed for that someone back in my life. Until about two weeks ago I actually laid out all of my feelings to them, and said everything on my mind. I stopped hiding out of my fear. I finally have closure from...

    My Mind Will Not Be Caged

    I wish for others what I wish for myself; the freedom to find their purpose, chose their path, and be the best that they can be.

    I was with a man for a very long time

    and he left me for a woman 10 years younger. After years of telling me he wasn't the "marrying type" he married her within a year. I was jealous and bitter for a bit. I was angry and felt traded in. And then I moved on and made a life for myself alone, but he was always at the...

    Well, I did it. I just finished composing a

    text about the Yin - Yang struggle that I've had with my need for feminine expression. An eloquent description of the anima / animus dichotomy of being me. I've just outed myself to my two closest friends.......

    That feeling of pure happiness,

    where you don't give a **** about your current surroundings or your state of health or your current position in life, that is called freedom of the mind.

    Loneliness

    I am free of loneliness. I came into this world alone and I will exit alone. When I was born neither one of my parents wanted me and if they did--they didn't know how to show it. My mother only told me that she loved me three times in my life so far, and my father did say it more...

    I love the way I go to school everyday even though I'm alone. I love the way I smile. I love the way that I am me. It's been a month since I let go of my friendship. Some of my important friends came to comfort and asked me about it. But I didn't want to talk much, because...

    Freedom Comes From Within

    When I was growing up, I always believed that freedom was attainable through external circumstances. "If I get out of this house I'll be free." "If I get away from this family I'll be free." I have since done both and I was still not free.Then I started believing "If only I can...
