A dear friend calls me a “free spirit”.
I am a free spirit!
But what does that mean?
For me it means that I think and act according to my own values and standards, that I do not compromise my values for the sake of money, acknowledgement, power, career, love, or anything else, not even for friendship. I choose in any given moment what to think, what to feel, how to act. I am responsible.
My values and standards include: love and appreciation for others as well as for myself, mutual respect and support, open mindedness, caring for each other, listening to each other, being honest with oneself and with others as much as possible (taking into regard that I have my unconscious parts too).
It also includes freedom of thinking and expressing, as long as I do not harm anyone.
What does it mean for you?
