A Few Thoughts on Independence

The Recovering Pessimist: A Few Thoughts on Independence -- A big reason for my independent nature is that I don't like depending on people, especially when I can do it myself. | #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimistI’m subscribed to the AMAZING  Shameless Maya on Youtube. In her “Get Ready With Me | Am I Too Independent?” video, she discussed being too independent while doing her hair and makeup. Check out the video below:

A few thoughts came to mind while I watched her video:

The realization that my independent nature derived from my 5th-grade teacher. In addition to teaching us the standard curriculum, he also taught us life skills such as how to complete a 1040EZ tax form and how to write a check.

I learn out of necessity because I tend to want things done a certain way and when I had other people do it for me, most of the time I was disappointed in the outcome. Over time, I learned that I can’t do it myself 100% of the time. What I can do is learn all that I can about the situation/problem/issue so that I have all the information needed to when I present it to someone for help.

When you know better, you do better right?

Until next time,
