Did you realize that it is good to be independent; however; it takes a greater skill to become interdependent (my favorite word). Yes, I said Interdependence. Interdependence is the ability to recognize the ability, talents, and resources in others and to be excited for an opportunity to come together so that each and every one involved wins.
Being independent is good and represents your ability to provide food, shelter, and personal items for yourself and family. However, becoming interdependent requires an additional skill from you.
