What Does Independence Mean to You?
Everyone is their own person, therefore peoples’ values are different. Each person has their own meaning of independence in their lives. The question remains as to whether being in a relationship changes our level of independence – has a relationship ever made you more dependent on your partner rather than yourself?
Whilst we can rely on many of our friends and family. It is still important to remember ourselves and that we have responsibilities and decisions to make throughout our lives.
One article in particular comes to our attention when we consider the traits that independent people have when they are in a relationship, which reflects on their strength of independence. Read the article here.
Do you follow any of these traits? Or do you consider being independent something different from the points mentioned in the article?
