Are you using your freedom?

We often forget how extremely privileged we are in comparison with others in the world. Perhaps our most sacred privilege is our freedom. We take it for granted. But our freedom of thought, freedom of speech, and freedom of choice … that we currently enjoy were hard won. The freedom (or freedoms) that we have today are results of our predecessors’ battles. We should not take it for granted! We should be grateful to our ancestors that they fought for freedom for us. We should appreciate that we have the privilege to be able to make choices that were not possible in the past and that are still not possible in other parts of the world.

I grew up in a society where freedom was limited. Not only by the iron curtain that made it very difficult to travel outside the communist block, but also by the disastrous ways the planned economy was conducted. Goods were scarce, goods were boring, everyone wore the same clothes and owned the same unexciting stuff. Nobody could complain or point out the inefficiencies without suffering serious consequences. One had to be really careful what one was saying to whom. Education and good work opportunities were reserved to those who were complacent with the regime.

So think about it and make use of your privilege! You’ve got the freedom to be what you want to be. Embrace your greatness and create the life that you truly desire for yourself and your family. Because you can. You are free to do that‼️

You know how some people get bullied in the workplace? And sometimes flashbacks from the past are haunting them even years after they left that situation? Well, what I do is to help them remove the emotional charge from their traumatic experiences and find their path to freedom.
