Here at Stockles, we often talk about stocks, money and personal finance, but that’s not the true purpose of the blog. Many bloggers talk about financial independence so that we quit our jobs and retiree early. What then? Are you going to wake up each morning and figure out what to do each and every single day? What a nightmare!
We often like to talk about freedom, as if we are prisoners. Jean-Jacques Rousseau defined the birth of civilizations as the moment when humans started setting up fences. Got that? What this means is that our civilization is a product of unfreedom or lack of freedom. And we need it. We need to have a certain amount of stability. Patterns. Daily routines. So, maybe you should stop thinking about being free in the sense of having no obligations, but rather becoming free from what’s keeping you from being you.
