The Dependent Me
The Dependent Me is me operating in my true blueprint. While independence is praiseworthy and dependency becomes this abnormality, I’m starting to see that being independent has been handicapping our society instead of freeing it.
It evokes in people an “I can do life by myself” attitude. Phrases like “I can raise a child by myself”, “I can go home to an empty box”, or “I don’t need anyone but me, myself, and I”, have become the new normal. Self Sufficiency! Pride! Pretentiousness! This manner of living has been destroying our World at large. Anxiety and depression are the by-products of acting like you need no one but yourself. Yet, anxiety and depression have the power to KILL.
So, Yes! I am dependent. I was born to join a community with a life purpose to LOVE. I find relief in knowing that being dependent is a strength and a virtue rather than a weakness and a vice.
Dependency softens me to love. It forces me to see that I’m not better than you. It helps me to see that I need you as much as you need me. It opens my eyes to see humanity as equal, whether white or black, literate or illiterate, rich or poor. No matter the color or creed, we were created to love and depend on each other.
