“If you live for a man compliments you’ll die from his criticism”- Cornelius Lindsey

We naturally learn how to be independent as we progress through our lives. The ability to be independent is something that not everyone possesses. When it comes down to it we, need to learn how to be independent to survive. At the end of the day people come and go and you only have yourself to fall back on.

This past couple of weeks I’ve learned exactly how important it is to be independent, to do things on your own. There is no reason whatsoever to base all of your decisions on relationships with people. Especially when we know all relationships end in some way shape or form, that is just the reality of it. People get comfortable, and they forget they can be replaced.

Independence is fundamental for success, promotes happiness increases a sense of accomplishment. Being independent shouldn’t scare you it should make you feel empowered, your independence comes from knowing who you are and you being happy with yourself.
