Restraint and Freedom

I was in a conversation earlier this week. The question came up about whether freedom is still freedom if we feel restrained? This question or line of thought has stayed with me. First because I am in a constant journey myself to find more and more of my own freedom. Second because one of my elders, Jojopah Maria Nsoroma has been talking about patience and perseverance lately. Patience as the feminine and perseverance as the masculine. These two ideas keep rolling around in my head. And third, because I am currently witnessing someone in my life that is stuck in this false belief.
