It’s amazing what freedom can do for your life. The freedom to say and do as we like can be the most emotionally liberating thing in the world. It makes me feel as if self censorship could actually be disease causing.
Spending a brief amount of time stuck in a self censorship cycle drained the majority of my energy, motivation, and drive. Gaining my freedom back felt like a never before experienced adrenaline rush. That was after only a few months of confinement. I can only begin to imagine what it must be like to spend years, or a lifetime, that way.
