Freedom…. that’s the one thing we have been fighting for since the beginning of mankind, may it be to free ourselves from the evil grasps of communalism, racism, monarchy, dictatorship or imperialism. We fight for our freedom because we want to be the ruler of our own life, we want to be the righteous owner of our life, of our society. Freedom, the one word that has been uniting people from different communities, caste, creed and race against all odds through the ages. Some battles we win and some we don’t, but no matter what the result of the battle is, we fight it, we never give up.
But what about our inner demons? How do we fight against those without losing ourselves in the process? How to win a never ending battle against your own self? How do we start living our lives instead of just coping with it? How do we ‘just live’? How do we gain our Freedom from our own dark selves?
We talk about getting a job, getting established in life, getting well settled but how does any of these things matter if you can’t find genuine happiness and purpose to live? Humans are nothing but a part of the animal kingdom but unlike other animals they tend to get attached to this mundane world, they tend to get way too absorbed into the concepts of society and it’s norms and along the line they forget to live. We should always remember that nothing matters in this world more than our own happiness and at the end of the day everything we do is because of the fact that we want to be happy…isn’t it? So find your happiness and the memories that bring you warmth and make your heart flutter, use those strong weapons to kill your inner demons because happiness can bring you the ultimate Freedom. And always remember……
“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” – Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
