Freedom is not the ability to do whatever you want but build acceptance of what’s going on in the moment. Teams always subjects one to think about these aspects and it is necessary to remember that despite minor differences we are part of the team and hence pushing towards maintaining control can cause undue tension.
One may have good reasons for his / her hypothesis but there is no point in wasting energy or time making big issue , in case there is dis-agreement. At the end of the day mindset coupled with attitude helps one to walk away from such situations.
With right mental outlook one can find ways to turn all events , even those which might be acting against your interests.
