There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires” – Nelson Mandela
I love this quote because I believe it defines perfectly how difficult it is to live in harmony with oneself. According to me, beeing aware of one’s desires, fighting for them and educating our social circle to respect our decicions is a key pilar towards our freedom.
As women, we are submitted to constant pressure and this makes me rise some questions:
What are my obstacles whilst fighting for something I really want?
Who says that I have to do things this way?
What is the worse thing that can happen if people don’t support my decision?
How do I handle feeling alone and different?
Let’s face it: it is a tough way filled with obstacles (many of them created by ourselves) and huge moments of loneliness…and it is also a big adventure, our personal life adventure towards our fulfillment!
Am I conscious that this is a challenge? Am I willing to face prejudgments of my social circle? Let’s go for it then.
