True Freedom


“The good man is free, even if he is a slave. The evil man is a slave, even if he is a king.”
-St. Augustine

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.

  1. A person who is a slave to a particular vice has a will that is free to choose instead to act virtuously. God bless!


    • True. However, if a person is literally a slave, such as in the case of human trafficking or slavery in plantations in the American past, and he acts virtuously, he has an inner freedom that a non-virtuous non-slave does not have. The non-virtuous is not free because he, as you said, is slave to his vices.
