Independence is love
I've been struggling to understand why independence is so very important.
It's important for sustaining myself, I understand. For not being a burden on others. Even for being able to give back to others. But all that doesn't seem like enough to me, not enough to explain why I think independence is so very important.
Independence means more to me than those reasons combined.
Independence is love. Independence is love because we care about ourselves, like ourselves, and enjoy ourselves.
