Better to be restricted home than to be free and homeless

A friend once told me it saddens her so much that up until now, her parents restrict her from going out.

She explained that her parents have been cautioning her not to leave the house, thus, always stay home, anytime they are going out.

That, she said, makes her feel that her parents perceive she will go out and engage in all sort of unspeakable things, though she has never moved an inch away from their sight without them knowing her whereabouts and what she goes to do.

This restriction really saddens her, awww😣.

I chuckled (hehehe 😅) and asked her if the parents close the door behind them when moving out of the house, and she replied no.

I then told her; “My dear, you are not being restricted by your parents, not even for a moment. They have always given you that freedom.”

No matter how absurd my response may seem, that is the truth.

You know? the parents did not lock up this daughter of theirs but let the doors open in front of her.

She could have gone out if she wanted to. Many of us have flouted the instructions of our superiors before so you will bear with me on the score. I lie?😉

The problem lies in the fact that she has refused to see the caution as an information the parents are giving to her about a malicious, dangerous and plagued-with-evil sort of outside that they never wish their daughter will become a part of.

However, she feels restricted, and at least, needs some sort of freedom.

By the way, I am not here to talk about going out. I rather want us to look at freedom and how it can contravene its meaning.

Freedom is a nice phenomenon that allows you to do whatever pleases you.

That is actually the brighter side. Have you ever thought about the dark side as well?

You should know that some of the very things that freedom allows you to do are the very things that will enslave you.

Freedom can really sound like a lofty concept and thus, shouldn’t be treated one-sided.

Today, people have made a god out of freedom and think it is of paramount importance in everything – whether it is the freedom to engage in outrageous sins or simply to ride a motorcycle without a helmet.

While is it important to be free, some freedoms we seek produce nothing but harm.

The fact that the door to freedom is set before you does not necessarily mean you should tread.

Know that it is better to stay in a home and be restricted than to be free and homeless.

Till next time, this is from my mind’s mind.

Useless column; don’t read !!!😂😂😂

I am going to eat my Fufu and energy drink with Uncle Otaah and Opanyin Boamah. After all, we are free to do so.

  1. I totally agree with you, sometimes we perceive being protected from external aggression and harm to mean we’re being restricted. But one thing we should never forget is that our parents always have our best interests at heart.😊😊😊
