To be independent does not necessarily mean that you need to compete with others at every juncture to prove yourself better. The first thing that independence entails is being aware of yourself – aware of your strengths, as well as your shortcomings.
“Learning to support yourself is fundamental for any success you ever hope to achieve”
For some reason, people think it is weird to go see a movie alone,to eat alone,wandering around the city,but for me I enjoy that.There is nothing weird to be you can go by yourself.There are so many activities that can become more enjoyable by taking part in them alone.
As we get older, we need to learn how to make the best decisions that allow us to live our lives the way we want to. Developing into an autonomous person can be one of the most worthwhile outcomes we can strive for ourselves.
“To acknowledge and accept every bit of yourself – things about you that are fabulous, and alsoneed work”
Being independent therefore means that you will be more likely to try out new things that you want, rather than what or how you are expected to.
The idea of setting independence as a goal can greatly boost multiple aspects of your life.Having a free and independent mind gives you freedom to explore your skills and talents and will ultimately bring out the best in you.
At the end of the day, you only have yourself to fall back on, so it is exceedingly important to be able to handle things on your own. It is all about being secure with who you are and what you believe in. It is extremely empowering knowing that you are in control of your own life and your own choices. It is much more beneficial to listen to the voice inside yourself rather than the berating opinions of others.
