Common to all people is the desire for freedom. The freedom to choose the life that we want, to be the person that we want to be, to do the work that inspires us and to surround ourselves with the people that we love and who love us.
You have this freedom.
If you want to be a top lawyer or live in a cabin by a lake, be the life and soul of the party or a pioneering therapist, surround yourself with family or join a community……it is down to you. But with freedom comes responsibility. The responsibility to make things happen. The responsibility to choose a direction, a response, a focus. Without responsibility, you have no freedom.
