Being Alone v. Being Independent

I think women are taught that being independent means that you have to be alone.  For some reason simply sharing your life and time with someone you care about means that you are dependent on them.

Independence is a state of mind.  It gives you the power to speak up, walk away from toxic relationships, and build bridges with people who have hurt you.

Independence is strength.  Strength that is long lasting.  You can be alone and insecure.  You can be alone and depressed.  But independence comes with optimism and ambition to work towards a better future.

I Am Independent.  I am Dependent. I am Depended Upon. It’s the best way to be.
