“Freedom Link” is actually a triple entendre. Don’t get excited, though. That’s 150% less sexy than a double entendre, not more. And I’m no mathemagician, but I think 150% less than anything is actually impossible? So we’re off to a strong start.
Firstly, when you’re bound in chains, the “freedom link” is the first one you’re able to break through–the one that makes your freedom possible. Once you break through that one, you’re not actually bound anymore, though you may be a bit encumbered. You just have to unwind the chains. Captors call this the “weakest link,” and you may discover that all those things “people” have tried to convince you were your weaknesses–all the ways you’re just plain not like everybody else or you don’t want what they want–are actually your opportunities to break free.
Everybody who actually has broken free from the Tyranny of Other People’s ExpectationsTM* has found at least one. Sometimes it’s easier to untangle the chain if you break through it in multiple places, so some people do find several, but there’s usually one first place the chain breaks that allows you to start believing the life you actually want is possible, and disentangle yourself from there.
When it comes to the things that hold you back, they’re only as strong as the freedom link.– me
Secondly, it’s how I want to use this site. I want to link you to ways to find freedom in your life. A lot of them will be the weird and wild ways I’ve discovered myself. Many will be interviews with various people who are absurdly passionate about magnificently peculiar things, but things that make them come deeply alive. What I want most in the world is a life filled with people who are radically (like from “radix,” “the root”) themselves, who have questioned everything they’ve been taught to take for granted, and have figured out what they actually believe.
And finally, it’s just me. I’m Link. Seriously. That’s my actual name. And when your name is a TLD and the driving force in your world is radical personal freedom and you can come up with a couple other “entendres” for the name, you just have to make a go of it.
So I want you to find your freedom link, and I want to provide a link to various kinds of freedom, and I am Freedom Link. There. Three entendres.
I don’t know. Maybe that’s sexy after all?
