What does independence mean to you?
You don’t answer to someone else.
You determine your own schedule, values, and priorities.
You stand alone.
Being able to depend upon yourself.
Not being a victim anymore.
Doing things without manipulation.
Living a fulfilling and sustainable lifestyle.
The ability to say no.
Not having to ask for permission to live my life.
Yesterday was Independence Day in the U.S., and a few days ago it was Canada Day up north.
Thankfully, independent living is available to almost everyone who reads this blog, by choice and by determination.
