I, The Absolute

Freedom at last

Posted by itheabsolute on March 7, 2005

All my life, i was responsible to someone or the other. All my pre-job education, it was parents and teachers to whom i was responsible. parents funded my studies; they had expectations; teachers would beat me. terrorise me. when i got my job, i became responsible to my employer. my employer paid for my living. i had to mortgage my time, i needed to behave, organise, deliver.

now, i choose to give up a well-paid job and attend a b-school. who am i responsible to. none. no one would beat me, scold me if i did not study; nobody would issue me memos if i did not perform. i am responsible to myself. a good feeling. freedom to be responsible to oneself.

the coming one year will tell how responsible i will be to myself.

  3. freedom & responsibilty; such contradicting words, very nicely put together. I started scratching my head…wondering what freedom really is!

    on a totally different note–
    I realize more than ever and after reading your thoughs that childhood is SO very important to us; and the memories don’t fade at all; especially if the are negative. It makes me aware of the great responsibilty that I have in giving my child a good chilhood.
