Being independent is the ability to do things, make decisions and being in control. A child that is independent can cope very well without interference from parents. I remember my little nephew as young as 4 years would go and stay with his grand parents and would not ask for his parents while some kids cannot stay away from their parents or family for 1 day.
It is a vital skill for people who want to take more control of their lives and feel like they don’t need others. But the fact is that you do need others at some point in time….no man or woman is an island. It refers to all aspects of your life including financial, career, emotional, personal faith and beliefs.
Nevertheless, its good to be independent no matter your age, sex or belief… it makes you more confident, accomplished, better decision making, self value and esteem.
So do you feel powerful when you are emotionally and financially independent?
