Independence is important to me because...

Updated: Nov 23

People's personal interpretation of independence is an interesting one!


According to the Cambridge dictionary, it means: the ability to live your life without being helped or influenced by other people


I love the way raisingchildren.net.au defines independence (this is relevant no matter how old you are!), 'Independence for pre-teens and teenagers is about trying new things, taking on more responsibility, making decisions by themselves, and working out who they are and what they want to be.' https://raisingchildren.net.au/.../independence-in-teens


I have heard people use 'independence' or 'independent' like it's a dirty word. How many of you have heard someone say, 'so-and-so, is far too independent for their own good.' Said in this context it conjures up a person who is defiant, stubborn, a risk taker, someone who doesn't listen to advice or is egocentric.


If we flip that perception, which I very much do, you could describe this person as adventurous, resourceful, self-reliant, free-spirited, bold, and daring, who sees opportunities, freedom, and resilience.


“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
