Is there such a thing as being overly-independent?
I feel like I might be straddling the line between independent and dismissive. All day at work I feel like I’m always saying ‘I have it under control.’ I do have everything under control but why can’t I accept some help?
It wouldn’t hurt!
I don't want to admit I can't complete any task. I suppose in the work place, self-motivation is a good quality to have but what about in relationships?
I’ve noticed that I have a strange little habit of putting myself up for anything and everything. I prefer to drive myself to the restaurant (sometimes even going as far as picking up my date), I prefer paying for the meal, and I prefer going out by myself even.
There’s something calming about knowing I have a method of escape if anything goes wrong. There's a comfort in knowing my car is parked outside. And get a certain rush of power when I pay for a meal and I also enjoy being by myself sometimes for events or maybe for a walk.
How independent are you? How independent aren’t you?
