True Freedom

Sometimes freedom looks like exuberance–whooping, hollering, and dancing wildly Other times freedom looks like quiet stillness–the complete absence of striving, with no need to prove anything to anyone Sometimes freedom looks like laughing Sometimes freedom looks like crying Sometimes freedom looks like permission to feel nothing at all Sometimes freedom looks effortless Other times freedom … More True Freedom
