I like the feeling of being 'independent'. Doing things on my own and being responsible for them. After my stay in Mysuru, when i went back home, i didn't like anybody at home telling me what to do and what not to. And denied them helping me at instances when i thought i could manage things by myself. The parents and M had to get used to this and it took them some time.
I think that 'independence' and 'freedom' are cliched words. And complex. I find it difficult to define them.
