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?

Today I am writing about self- reliance and independence for my English class. Self-reliance, or independence, is where a person doesn’t need anyone to lend them anything. Self-reliance is important because it makes it so that you can take care of yourself.

I think that independence is something that is very important for a society. Self-reliance is important because it means that you can do things for yourself and you don’t need anyone’s help. If you could be anything, you would want to be independent because you would not need anyone to do anything so you can succeed. If you weren’t independent, you would always need help and you would never be able to take care of yourself without out someone right there with you.

People use self-reliance everyday. Now I say that you can use self-reliance, when really it is a lifestyle. For someone to create a working functioning business, without the help of other people or companies is self-reliance. For someone, of any age, to create a business that gives something that people need a lot is very substantial.

Some people don’t want to be self-reliant. I don’t agree with these people but it’s their own opinion and that must be regarded and not necessarily supported but allowed. Those type of people say that to be self-reliant is bad because then when you fall nobody will pick you back up. If you don’t have anyone to pick you back up then you will always be alone and then you have to pick yourself up and that is just a pain. The way that these people see this is that you have a “pack” and the community is your pack and you have to help the pack no matter what.

In conclusion, I think that self-reliance is one of the best things that the world has ever known. For someone to think that you need someone to help you with everything, is dumb. I think that you should take care of yourself and your family as much as needed but stop there. Please like or dislike and definitely leave comments no matter what you thought.

Until next time, your friendly neighborhood Homeschooler…
