You’re already free. I’m free, you’re free–so why do so many of us feel trapped?
No one ever wakes up in the morning and says, “Thank goodness I am free to buy more stuff I don’t need and to fill my every waking moment with meaningless activity! Hooray, I can spend this day seeing how I measure up to everybody else on Facebook, and never really making a difference in the world because I was too busy trying to meet some imagined standard of living for my own self.”
Wouldn’t you rather be free for something better?
