What does independence means to you?
Is it the events of wars to fight for the right to make our own decisions (in the U.S.), is it freedom declared by documents, is it democracy? You tell me… Let your words be heard… After you spill your thoughts about independence listen to others’.
Honestly, I think independence or being independent means to mature, to live life through you’re own decision making, finding out what makes you happy, finding your limits, discovering your mistakes, discovering ways to prevent repeating mistakes, and etc. No matter what age you are independence is always necessary, in any area. As of right now, at this moment, independence is what will set me free. Free from my pain. Free from my anger. Free from worrying about someone else’s welling being (who don’t appreciate it) more than mines. Free from feeling like a failure. Free from my negative thoughts. I’ve learned to never take independence for granted. Continue to make your own decisions and take responsibility for your own actions while the chance is given to you because once the time come when you feel like dependence is needed, you will fall in too deep, if you don’t know how to use dependence temporarily. Once dependence take over your character, you will lose your self of relevance, your happiness, and opportunities. You can trust someone with your secrets but never with you sense of self. Nobody can do anything for you like you can do for yourself.
So make your life easier and jump on any opportunity that you can with out anybody holding your hand through the process.
