Cultural Quote #135: Am I Independent?

To say, “I am independent” is a lot like saying, “I am humble.” It’s a contradiction. Typically, when we say, “I am independent,” we are trying to increase our level of attractiveness to others, which proves we are not independent because we care what others think about us. The truth is all people in their right mind are INTERdependent. Codependency, or excessive dependence on others as an adult, is as equally unhealthy as self-isolation.
