Are there ANY stories of personal liberation out there?

@meg my wife & I sold everything over a year ago to buy a cabin cruiser and live rent free & off-grid. Nothing as dramatic as sailing around the world, but it has been liberating in many ways.

@Jglennbauer I got kicked outta the house & lived in my car, rent free & off grid as an undergrad (then again, I had a parking permit). Not a story of personal liberation. Mind you, seducing my dad's mistress, "turning her gay," and having her come out at a faculty party (not my fault, I swear it) was pretty liberating... for her, anyway.

As for "stories of personal liberation" I was thinking big pic & literature: Thelma & Louise, 7 Years in Tibet, etc, & why, kinda thing. Role models.
