The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.

Unfree in a free world

Modern-day life is full of obligations. We don’t only need to make a living, we also feel like we need to please everyone in our social lives and keep up with strangers on social media. 

If we’re unfree in a free world, it’s because of our own doing. At some point, I realized that if I wanted to be truly free, I  needed to make it happen. No one else will do it for you. Not your parents, brother, sister, partner, or friend. No one but you is responsible for your life.

Everything we do should be a conscious decision .

You’re free to do whatever you want as long as you’re not harming others. If you have solid core values for yourself, you will only make things better for everyone when you’re free.

A free person respects another person’s freedom more than anything else in the world. Because freedom is  the most important thing.

  1. Stability:I always assumed life should be certain. There’s no such thing. Accepting that will help you to embrace uncertainty.
  2. Comfort:What’s comfort good for if it only makes you weak?
  3. Lies:We lie to ourselves and others all the time. It’s like a bottomless pit we can’t get out of. 
  4. Incompatible People:Some people have different values than you. And that’s okay.
  5. Fearing Money:When you’re so scared to lose your money, you won’t be able to make more of it.
  6. Mindless Entertainment:You can’t escape your responsibilities by distracting yourself.

Unfree in a Free World

We all are unfree in a free world. We do things we are obliged to do. We spend money on things we are told by society to spend on.

We are responsible for our lives, while we mistakenly think that our parents, siblings, teachers, friends or other outsiders are responsible for them.

A Definition of Personal Finance

Personal finance is about managing your own money - how much you spend, save, get into debt, and invest.

How you manage your money will depend on your age, education, ambition, family, and country of residence. While this guide will give you enough input to work out a strategy, you should always consider your own personal situation.

More options = happier life

In the modern age, the more options we have available, the happier we feel.

In Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart, Psychiatrist Gordon Livingston writes that those who are most unwell or discouraged suffer from a sense of limited choices, sometimes brought on by external circumstances or illness, but most often by the ways we restrict ourselves.
