What Do You Value More – Freedom or Security?
Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the United States, said: Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Yet, the more we are dealing with fear and anxiety, the more easily we are willing to trade in freedom for a sense of security. We avoid speaking up, making changes, or taking risks. We hide in the safety of our comfort zones, and no longer take advantage of the freedom to explore and express our true potential. We stop being open, curious and tolerant towards others, and instead judge and reject all those who we deem as different. While these self-protective patterns are understandable, the truth is that safety and security come from within and are more than just avoiding anger and discomfort.
