Freedom may be used with different meanings. It may be defined as the state of not being a prisoner or slave. It may also be defined as the power or right to act, speak etc as one wants without anyone stopping one. Here you want to mean the second definition, I think. No one in this world can live with full freedom in life, nor there was any one at any time who lived with full freedom. Democracy claims it to be a part and parcel of life unless it hurts or affects the interests of other people and all democratic countries claim to allow their citizens freedom of speech, but I differ. Moreover, freedom in all respects of life is not good at all, rather freedom within the limits of discipline is welcome.

Yeah, they have many different meanings and each meaning have their own explanation and elaboration what is all about. But for me to make it clear and short , it is a freedom to ourselves that no one can stop and tell us what to do.But too much freedom cannot make us discipline in our own attitude. well, thanks for sharing your comments with us and have a nice day ahead Godbless

Yeah, freedom is something that we need, something that we can't live without. It's something that we strive each day to have it, such as freedom to choose, freedom to express, freedom to live. History shows brave people who fight for their freedom and for their life. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

For me, freedom is the chance I have to do all the things that make me feel alive without restrictions and without harming other people (kind of responsable freedom). You can feel freedom everyday if you are happy with who you are and what you do. I think it's related to happiness...

Freedom for me is a mindset. I could have all this limits or barriers preventing me to be happy but as long as my mindset is that I have the choice or control over these things around me, i can feel free. I try to live with freedom in my life otherwise situations in my life would bring me down and i'd be pigeon holed into a certain way of living which i definitely do not want to be in a position to be. you can say it's a form of self delusion wherein you do it as a defense mechanism to protect you from the stuff that is happening around you.

You are free for example from those jobs you want to be part of it and no one can control you and stop you fro what you are going to do. That is the part of having a freedom but unfortunately to much freedom in our self makes us trouble. Why? sometimes if we didn't have any limitations in life we will be going to do wrong things that makes ourselves in danger. we better take care of it. well, thanks for sharing your comments with us and have a nice day ahead Godbless

I live my life with all freedom. I have the freedom to do whatever I want without hurting anybody. Freedom doesn't mean doing anything you want. We should not hurt other while exercising our freedom. I decide on my deeds and I have control on my actions. Nobody is forcing me to do anything in life. Nobody is hurting my freedom, at the same time I am not hurting anybody's freedom.

Our freedom is not a license to do whatever we want even if it means hurting other people. It doesn't mean having no string attached, it does mean staying connected with those people whom we care and who love us. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

freedom comes with great responsibilities. or is it --great power comes with great responsibilites--? lol. seriously though, it s like a mind illusion where you think you have a great, wide space to walk in but you have to watch your step for traps and pitfalls. freedom for me is making my own decision and when you make your own decision you really have to think a hundred times about it so you won t fall to a pitfall.

I like how the way you define freedom, yeah it's ones ability to make decision and face the consequences of actions. It takes huge responsibility to live freedom without hurting other people and falling into a trap. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!
