A free spirit functions best when she is left to her own devices.
We feel spiritually claustrophobic when we're faced with days of constant similarity.We are always seeking ways to expand our minds, make ourselves better people and become one with the world.A free-spirited woman will never shun another person for thinking differently, and she loathes discrimination and hatred. A free-spirited woman doesn't need anyone to fulfill her.I’m often labeled as a “free spirit.”At first, I wasn’t sure what this label was supposed to mean.It seemed like such a trivial way to categorize such complex beings. But some introspecting, I realized I may have inherited this title from the woman who raised me: My mother. She was child of the 60s and 70s; she made her own clothes, dated men on her own terms, always spoke her mind and had a mess of thick, Italian-American hair, which she never wanted to tame.When we experience bouts of sadness, we reach out to others for support.Just simply being around another happy person can lighten our mood because of how susceptible we are to others' feelings.Our empathy causes us to go through powerful highs and lows.We are the first people our friends go to when the going gets tough.One day, we may be practicing Buddhism and the next day, we may be interested in Astrology.We take in all religion and spirituality, and we construct these beliefs into a single ideology that fits within our lives.
