Independence To ME is..

The only other thing that’s as important to me as my self respect. My independence.

And, Independence to me isn’t just about paying my bills. It is a fat lot more than that.

For starters,

Independence to me is, to be able to breathe, without someone breathing down my neck.

To be able to choose my identity. To be able to choose my career. To be able to choose my goals for life. To be able to choose not to be part of the rat race.

To decide what’s good or bad for me, and to be able to live by my decisions. Independence to me, is to be able to experience and learn from them, without always being shielded.

Independence to me is to be able to go through what ‘I’ choose to go through, without being influenced or manipulated by the world.

Independence to me is, to be able to choose my way of life, and to be able to live it as happily as I would want to.

To be able stand on my own two feet, to be able to live in my space with dignity, no matter what my decisions are.

 
Independence to me is, to be ME, not what the others wish to see.

I hoard books for a living. And read them too, when I am not sleeping. I express what I think, so my unheard feelings don't sink. I like to sing when I walk, to keep shades grey, at bay. I speak like a dork, but I don't want to drive anyone away. I write what's real, and nothing fake, so visit my blog whenever you need a break ;)
