How to use "Free rein" in context?

There is something undeniably freeing about the chance to do whatever you please. It's what attracted us to the idea of freedom in the first place. And that feeling of springing into action without hesitation is something we cherish. But is it really what we want? When we're allowed to do whatever we want, without any guidelines or obstacles in our way, we can quickly become rudderless in our actions. This is because freedom without responsibility is an empty feeling, devoid of any substance. And without substance, it quickly dissipates, taking the excitement and vitality it once held with it.
