Being free is all in your perspective, there must be something or someone else to weigh your freedom against. Absolute freedom is unattainable. Some people do not want freedom, they want to depend on others to make all their decisions in life. Attempting to be free is hard, you have to be on your guard at all times, it's just not for everyone. But mainly, we just have to work with what we are given and convince ourselves that we are indeed free even if others don't feel that we are. A very complicated and wonderful question.

It remains one of the biggest and deepest of philosophical questions,<br />
with implications for religion, psychology and law.<br />

After that the remainder is conditioned by our environment.<br />
I believe the only time we are truly free to choose is when we are fully aware in the moment, and not reacting through habit. For most of us, this does not come naturally but has to be learned through constant practise.

Of course. And life could be an illusion too.<br />
<br />
But here's my thought: Life feels real, and it feels like I have free will. So I choose to believe that I do have free will, and that I should take responsibility for my actions.<br />
<br />
I am right, then I have taken charge and done what is right.<br />
<br />
But suppose I am wrong, and that I don't have free will. Well, then I can't be blamed, can I?<br />
<br />
So I think that believing in free will is the right choice. Illusion? Could be. But it won't affect my choices.
