I was born independent and the biggest mistake I ever made was falling into the arms of society. Free will has become an option, and that is where we have all lost ourselves. You can either choose to live, or avoid the things you will never know by experiencing things at your own discretion.
We are the creator of our own lives.

That's absolutely true. And very succinctly put. Well done.

i second this, let us also add the illusions of choice society provides as to make it look less like a prison. specifically things like we have 300 different fast food services, 500 shoe styles, 700 different lattes, but yet there are 2 political parties ( that will ever be considered of course) and only a hand full of actual importance choices that we really control. we can vote for someone and sure they might get into office, but of course we still can end up disagreeing completely with what they are doing, the excuse being of course well we voted for him. i am sort of crazy with conspiracy theories so i still think that our votes don't even matter but hey we should be more in control of our government but still it completely controls us and our society.

Apart from the conspiracy theories bit, which I'm not crazy about, yeah you pretty much sum up what I'm saying in a more explicit way.
I like to leave it open to interpretation and try and make it sound pretty, because I'm incredibly superficial about my writing.

Interesting. I agree that sometimes, when we let society influence our choices, we can start to become trapped. But at the same time, if we choose, we can free ourselves again.

Thank you for submitting this to #the-thinkers :heart:
