“He offered her the World – she said she her her OWN.” -Unknown
Today is Independence Day. So, I will keep this brief. I found this quote on Google and thought – what better way to celebrate this day than to discuss having and expressing your own independence.
It is the sweetest and most romantic expression of love when your significant other offers you the World. It’s this person’s way of telling you they will have your back physically, emotionally, and financially. While that is beautiful, it is always better when you have your own back – physically, emotionally and financially.
To be solely vulnerable to another is troublesome. The sad truth is that you have put someone else in charge of your life. The reality is that this person may not always be around. Then what? You have to start from scratch and find yourself.
Being self- sufficient and independent is more attractive. Though, being too self-reliant is a turn off. It is perfectly fine to let someone do for you from time to time. Just show this person that you can take care of them and yourself – on occasion.
Enjoy this weekend,
