Many heroes fought for it. They shed blood to protect it. They sacrificed their own lives to attain it. In exchange for independence and freedom, these brave men and women gave their last breath so all of us who are living now can enjoy it.

Freedom from Social Norms

For most of us, we can already say that we live in an independent and freedom loving country. However, some aspects of our culture still restrict us to be different – to be free. For most of us, we choose to chain ourselves from the norms of society. If we go against it, we will risk ourselves from being tagged as either rebellious or outcast.  But to those who survived, probably bruised from the experience, have taught them how to be brave like our national heroes.

If you are willing to take the risk of breaking the norms of society, one must be willing to go blind so that you will not see the harshness of the punishments for your deviancy. Also, one must be willing to go deaf so one will not hear the pain of their personal attacks against your philosophy and advocacy. They will not only invade you, but they will also torture those who are associated with you and those who support you. That’s the price of freedom, but the rewards of it are endless.

Sometimes, dictates of society restrict us from walking the path of inner happiness. But freedom is your choice. If you want it, fight for it and be a hero to yourself.   

Life is free, you are free to love your life and you are free to live your life the way you want it.
