    Freedom From Society?

    Every day that passes I feel less and less inclined to attempt to be a part of this society.  All I see is billions of people striving for money, more money, and still more money.  Wealth and prosperity is measured by some man-made device that really doesn't count for...

    I envy those who live their lives normally I

    hate that they don't feel every second of their freedom, and most of them take things for granted they don't know in some other parts of the world. girls can't go out without approval can't travel without approval can't wear what she wants without others judgments can't have a...

    Nothing last forever

    so live it up, drink it down, laugh it off, avoid the bullshit, take chances and never had regrets because at one point everything you did was exactly what you wanted.

    So be free. I was told "you are not a victim

    - are you a child? Are you helpless & fully at the mercy of others? Whilst you might think you are, you are not. Use your legs, & that mighty will of yours & walk away. It is your choice. You always have choice. You are therefore free." So be free. Make the choice.

    I am trapped. Caged in by the stress of reality.

    I long for the freedom of a different life. I look around at everyone else. So carefree and happy. Why can't I have that? Perhaps one day I can be free.

    Freedom is something all humankind crave.

    For me, its not the physical freedom that I crave, but the mental one. I come from a family where its abnormal to leave and make your own choices. I want to be what I want to be. I want to explore the world. To try different new things. But I'm stuck in the cuffs of normality...

    I never really thought about what the topic of

    Is it too much to want to be free?

    I want to not feel the pressure to be perfect or do what others want me to do. I want to not feel the judgement of others and be able to finally breathe because for once no one else's opinion of me matters.

    away from your grasp. From my own ideals. We tried too hard to understand each other, we expected too much from each other. When all is said and done the only thing to do is to let go. I hope you find as much liberation as I do when you've learned to let go. My heart is torn...

    From My Ego

    Staying on course is difficult.  I've learned the hardway that it is necessary to just go with the flow.  I can't have a stake in the outcome of life situations.  It will be difficult, but I will try.  I am just looking for some peace.

    Maybe I don't want to be free anymore.

    I'm so used to captivity now that I wouldn't know what to do with my freedom if I ever to have it back. Maybe it's forgotten me like I've forgotten it. Maybe it's better this way. I just don't know anymore.
