Are you free?

Are you living the life you want, or some measure towards it?  Or are you living in sacrifice, compromising everything that would be your choice for the sake of someone else's choices, or simply a lack of your own.  If these are two ends of a spectrum, where within it do you stand?  Where do you want to stand?

Sometimes our lack of choice simply comes from lack of knowing - what we want, who we are, what we stand for, what would make our life feel complete, or some measure towards it.

How free do you want to be?  This is also different for everyone.  Our many and varied life experiences have shaped today, and for obvious or completely hidden reasons, a contented life is just a really simple one for some.

I'm not setting a bar for freedom, I'm setting a bar for self-awareness.  Understand your own definition of freedom, of contentedness, and create your life to fit that, to fit you, with minimum compromise.
