1. The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants.‘we do have some freedom of choice’
2. The state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.
Freedom, hmmm... how free are we to all have our own opinion on freedom and what freedom means for us. Freedom could be sitting on your yacht with champagne, dancing to techno music or waking up next to a different one-night stand every week.
WHAT DOES FREEDOM MEAN FOR YOU?
One thing about freedom is that everyone is free to have their own definition of what freedom means for them. We would like to know what you think and if, at some point, we add it all, we will have a pretty nice average of what freedom means for our audience.
How about if you give it a thought, write it down and upload your very own interpretation of what freedom means for you? For inspiration see what other IAM4FREEDOM Heroes said in our YOURSTORY4FREEDOM wall.
our heroes on freedom
I am Jody and IAM4FREEDOM! I've never felt more free than I'm feeling right now. To get so much love and positive feedback for just being yourself is kind of crazy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I would recommend it to anyone. I am a transgender girl and I am very proud of that. In this world it's not easy to be different, especially when it isn't a choice to be different but it's just how you're born. This is who I am and I've learned to be proud of myself. IAM4FREEDOM!
I am Marjolein and IAM4FREEDOM! To me freedom means that you can live your own life. You make your own decisions and choices and no one can control your life for you. No one makes your decisions for you. Every moment and every single day. But it also means that you have to live with the consequences of the choices that you make, whether they are good or bad. Yes, I can live my own life and make my own choices. I can raise my kids the way I want to, and surround myself with people who I love. It means I can live where I want to and do the work I like to do. I do not have to ask anyone for permission to do these things. Because of all these freedoms, I'm grateful to live and be able to live my own life the way I want, as happy as I can. Sometimes we take freedom for granted and don't think of all the little things that we get to enjoy because we are free. When you stop and think about how different life would be without it, it makes you very thankful to live here and enjoy the promise of freedom. IAM4FREEDOM!
