Alone Together (GBE 44: Independence)

There is a difference between independent and alone.

Standing on my own feet and having no one to support me are not the same thing.

Making my own choices, for my own reasons is not mutually exclusive to wanting advice.

I would give you the shirt off my back, the food from my plate, my heart to hold, my soul; if you needed it. I would give it to you even if you didn’t. I would stand up for you, stand up to you, stand up beside you; with out hesitation.

It scares the breath out of me that you would do the same.

All this time, I have thought I wanted to be alone when what I needed was independence.

Thank you for helping me see the difference.
