Topic: Do we put too much emphasis on self-reliance and independence, and are we afraid of admitting that we need other people in our lives?
I believe that we do put too much emphasis on self-reliance, as well as us being afraid of admitting we need other people in our lives. From my personal experience, it’s safe to say that a lot of emphasis is put on self-reliance.
Many people say that they only way to get by in this world is by being on your own. Trusting no one, just doing a job, and paying bills. That’s how you’re supposedly get by in this world. This message is ingrained in your head as you grow older. I believe this is what causes the fear of admitting you need other people.
I believe our society puts way too much emphasis on being by yourself in this world. Truthfully though, there is no real way to self-reliant or independent. It’s okay to admit you need other people in your life. One’s life would be miserable without others, after all.
