How did you go about being independent? How independent are you? Moreover this is a general thread on being independent so feel free to post anything on it.

Independence includes things like good decision-making skills and learning about all of the areas in your life where you can take charge.

Wow, three threads in a row.

@topic.
It's always nice to ask your parents for help when you're in trouble.

I can make good decisions and nether myself from too much dependence, but I know that I will need help sometimes.

Ive been independent for a long time, probably started when i was around 6 years old, i knew i couldnt ask for much from my mom so i took care of myself pretty well....she is a great person, she just has a hard time getting by through life...i worry about her alot

Being independent (to me) shows growth and maturity. Everybody reaches that point at sometime in their lives (I hope). It also makes you appreciate life more when you can depend on yourself to get you through tough times and to make you happy.

Being independent works perfectly fine for me.


I can cook my own food
I can clean & wash the dishes perfectly fine
I prefer being alone where I live
I learn quickly
I'm not afraid to ask for help and/or guidance about something


.. Yeah.

It's hard and easy at the same time. I am an only child so i had to learn real quick on taking care of myself
I still lose my keys from time to time.

I've been independent ever since I could remember. I'm scared to ask for people's help.

I'm doing the same thing, but at the same time I wish I wasn't returning but I really do need to figure things about before I leave.

Im very independent! I can cook and like cooking. I can clean and am organized. I dont like depending on people because you never know when your gonna get let down. I like doing my own thing and i hate it when people make decisions for me unless its ultra important or im in a terrible state that i cant make decisions like when im depressed or sick. I cant be around my parents or family too much because i feel like im suffocating. I cant wait to get out on my own and have freedom because my parents over use their authority and i hate it so much.
