How can we have boundaries and be Free at the same time?
Pure freedom is impossible, there are limits to what one person can do. So to answer your question, I guess none of us are truly free. We're all limited by our mortal coils. Still, trying to achieve as much freedom as possible is important for our evolution.
We stop our toddlers from touching the stove. It is hot and they need to learn that or they will be burnt.
We need boundaries to stop ourselves from doing harm to ourselves or others. Harm can come in all forms ....
Still, from an ancestry of slavery I love this freedom thing. LOL. Give me boundaries all you want. I can read, write, and my child is sleeping in his own bed. LOL.
Be realistic about the boundaries you set, and always look after yourself in a holistic way.
learn the differene between freedom and licence,.... they are not the same thing.
It is a mental thing. For me, boundaries are the laws, ethics, and morals of our society. Outside of that, my life is my own and my thoughts and actions are my own. I respect other people to the greatest extend that I can and I always will. At the same time, you have to understand that life comes to you with its own set of challenges that are "your challenges"...they are yours to overcome. Sometimes they constraint, sometimes they wear you down, but it is up to you to sustain and dominate. That's what living is about. From that standpoint, there are no real boundaries. WB

We need to keep in mind that freedom of speech was created for some Good. (As in disseminating what is True.)Not some Bad. (As in Lying.)There seems to be a lot of abuse of free speech on the internet and ELSEWHERE!
