Off and on, I was warned about the repercussions of being a free spirit. They label my natural state of being as rebellious, uncaring, un-emotional or whatever term they devise on the spur of the moment.

I learnt soon enough that the problem is same on both sides – discomfort with not being in control.

They resent not being able to exercise control on my life.

I cannot bear the idea of not being in control of my life.

Repercussions have been there – not in the outer, but in emotional worlds. Rejection, gaslighting, mental abuse are not easy to handle.

Yet, strength that develops as a result of walking alone on those paths is a blessing.

I prefer to call it an outcome, rather than consequences or repercussions.
