Happy Wednesday! 🎉
Your freedom is independent of my freedom. If I’m free and you’re not, is it freedom? I don’t think it’s a sum game.
However, we’re still thinking that we can’t have the freedom to do what we want by not harming others.
Is it true? If everyone wants to be an entrepreneur, a writer, a scientist, then who’s going to do all the work? Who’s going to prepare the food, build houses, drive buses and collect taxes?
Turns out there are people who are passionate about things you are not.
Thanks to people who spent their lifetimes researching antibiotics we’re not dying from just about any infection. Thanks to people who dedicated themselves to the soap we’re able to kill most of the germs before they enter our food and poison us. Thanks to all the people who spent their limited time on developing products and services we use every day and don’t ever think about.
We’re living on freedom.
Not many people get to choose to do exactly what they want but I don’t believe it. We always have options and always have a way.
Today, you have the freedom to choose your actions, you’re free to make decisions that will affect your future self. Even if you’re in a very limited position, you’re free to choose how you view it. As Viktor Frankl, a Nazi camp survivor and author of Man’s Search for Meaning, wrote, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
We all can be free. Without affecting each other’s freedom, because if you’re free and I’m not, is it really freedom? It can co-exist, and it should if we want to be better off and allow human progress.
Support everyone doing what they love regardless of your beliefs.
