Independence is a requirement for leading your own life.
How can you make decisions if every action you take has to be filtered through other people first ?
Without independence, you can’t be the captain of your life.
Independence doesn’t mean you never need other people.
Most people wouldn’t last a year stranded on an island with no other people to provide support.
Independence means that you add at least as much value back as you take from every transaction.
Here are some of the things to remember :
- Complete your tasks in a timely manner without getting reminded by your teachers.
- You must try to clear your room, learn to do your own laundry and make your own lunch.
- You must also learn to use the toilet by yourself and wash up afterwards.
- You must also learn to dress on your own.
Remember, it’s definitely a good thing to be able to take care of yourself. So, be independent !
