Independent is the will of all people because being independent people can do everything they can but cannot be separated from the nature that humans are social creatures. Becoming more independent gives you the freedom to do what you want without caring what others think and it will also lead you to find some genuine solutions to your problems.
You cannot build a strong and independent self if you can only depend on others. Don’t say things that don’t suit you. Everyone can be strong enough. Everyone has been resistant to something, showing their strength. Put behind you your mistakes and learn from them. Try to be a better you and most importantly love yourself.
- This is something important to be independent because accepting yourself will make you not try to act like other people.
Believe in Yourself
If you don’t believe in yourself then who will? We are all different and have something unique to say. No one can say the words on your lips and not everyone will agree with what you say, therefore it is important for you to believe in yourself. You have to trust your own decision even if it is completely against the expectations of others or even society.
- If you don’t believe in yourself, you will always ask for help from others whenever you have to make a decision. Avoid it.
Stop Carring about what other people think
This is the most important thing to be independent. Stop listening to other people’s unfavorable judgments about your life, whether they are thinking about your clothes, your career choices, or other important people’s choices. This is your decision, and not someone else’s.
- If you always have the nagging thought, “But what will other people think if…” in the back of your head, then you’ll always be holding yourself back from doing your own thing.
