Freedom From Isn’t Freedom

We all always want to be happy, growing, and free. We can think about freedom in two ways. There’s freedom from the things that bug us, stop us, or threaten us. Then there is freedom.

The difference is in how these two ideas feel. When we think about things we want freedom from, we are focused on what we don’t want. And that feels bad. When we think about why we want the freedom we want and how having that freedom would feel, we feel great.

Which way of thinking about freedom will get us closer to what we want?
