Being independent is not as easy as it sounds. Actually, it doesn’t even sound easy. It’s easier to rely on other people to do (or don’t do) what we want, to give us what we need, and to help us find our way.
But being independent is necessary.
It’s scary to think that we really can only ultimately depend on ourselves for what we need.
Sure, there’s nothing wrong with asking for or needing help, but it’s different when we know we can do it on our own.
The feeling of liberation is one you won’t get anywhere else.
To know that you are in charge of your life somehow, that you are in control (even when things seem out of it), and to be liable for your actions is priceless.
But sometimes when we’re experiencing hardships, we feel like we’re behind the game. We look around and see how other people are doing and they seem to be doing loads better than we are.
What you don’t know is that someone may be looking at you and thinking the same thing.
So here are a few signs that means you’re staying on top of your game:
#1.You’re paying for your own things
Financial independence is something we all need to attain. It’s not just for the single people out there. Even if you’re in a couple or even married, you need to be financially independent of your partner or your family.
Money can be a big issue when it comes to relationships. It has the power to corrupt, to turn friends and families into stangers, and to dissolve partnerships. If you’re able to neutralize the situation by not needing to depend on others to finance you, the more you’ll be able to cherish them and feel good about yourself.
#2. You aren’t just dating for the sake of it
We get it, being alone kind of sucks. That can be true. But it’s also true that being on your own can be pretty awesome too.
You have to learn how to be by yourself before you couple up with anyone. If you’re comfortable in your own skin, confident about what you have to offer if you’re ever in a relationship, then you know that wasting your time dating around just so you can say you’re not alone is not an option.
People pressure themselves into finding a mate, even if they know it’s not the right one because of what others think they should have.
If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t give in to this kind of idea, then you’re already ahead of the curve.
#3. You’ve stopped relying on others for validation
Sure, the occasional compliments here and there are something to crave for. So is the appreciation for doing something well. But a person who has it together gets both from themselves first rather than sit around and wait for others to dole them out.
Look, the person you need to impress the most is yourself. Then comes everybody else.
#4. You’ve loosened up
When you already know which things you can control and which ones you should just let go, then you’ve stepped up on the maturity level.
Being in control of your life is one thing, but wanting to control much more is impossible. Those who have it figured out more than others have already accepted that they will never be able to fully navigate everything in their lives. That there are things out of their control.
If you know how to stop yourself from poring over every little detail of your life, you know you have it good.
#5. You know how to respect your body
As you get older and wiser, you realize how much your body means to you. You know your body inside and out, you know its limits, you know its strength and weaknesses, and you know how to take care of it.
A lot of people take their health for granted. They abuse their bodies and later on wonder what happened. Someone who’s doing fine will have already realized that their bodies are temples. Without it, it’ll be near impossible to accomplish the things we want to.
