Don’t take your FREEDOM for granted!

Dr Amir Lakha M.B.,Ch.B – Harrow, UK

Every human being is born a free person and not a slave to anything or anyone.

Human beings vary in their likes and dislikes. Some, however, love to let others make decisions for them and they are comfortable that way. They are, voluntarily, renouncing their freedom and are happy – and what’s wrong with that?

On the other hand, freedom should not be exercised by being devoid of control over one’s speech and actions. Why? because being indiscreet with speech or actions can cost one heavily in terms of relationships, retaliation, punishment or even one’s life if vented out in certain circumstances or environment.

With freedom comes responsibilities. The free person needs to believe in prudence and develop reasonable judgement. The free person, although being fully in control, has to take full responsibility for his or her actions and be prepared to face the consequent repercussions when they arise.

To control the outcome of anything, you control the action at the point of decision making. If you let others make decisions for you, you give up control.  When you control the decisions, you control the actions. It’s your life.  You decide what you are going to do with it. If you don’t run your own life someone else will.  You are in control of your life to the degree you make decisions.

Take charge of your life so that there is no longer a need to ask permission of others.  When you ask permission, you are giving someone else veto power over your life. Take control and start making those decisions. Only you are responsible for your life.

Everyone takes freedom for granted. The real value of freedom is mostly appreciated when it is non-existent or has been lost. Conflicts and Wars can lead to loss of freedom.

So, guard your freedom by promoting peace, love and understanding globally.
