"No one becomes independent alone. Even the Lone Ranger had Tanto & Silver." -Sylvia
We like the myth of the self-made wo/man. But it is a myth. No one comes into the world self-sufficient, and no one survives its challenges on their own. Even the most adventurous among us rely on the technology and resourcefulness of others to accomplish our goals. Healthy relationships provide support and encourage independence. Acknowledging our inter-dependence makes us stronger.
