Let’s Choose Our Freedom
April 30, 2022
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing, the last of the human freedoms to choose one’s attitude to a given set of circumstances, to choose one’s ways.”
This is a quote by Victor Frankl from one of my favorite and inspiring books, Man’s search for meaning. I refer to this whenever I feel like I am getting into a negative mindset.
We all know that Victor Frankl survived the Nazi concentration camp when everyone else around him lost hope, fell into despair, and gave up their fight to survive. Victor got through the ordeal by invoking the human freedom of exercising choice. He chose not to let the negativity get to him. He decided to focus on the positive without letting all that was happening around him impact him.
Our problems and challenges are nothing compared to what Victor Frankl endured. We can all get inspired by his message.
Let’s choose our freedom- By looking for all that is good and positive around us and ignoring the negative noise.
