How Is Your Independence Costing You True Freedom?
This week, we in the USA celebrate our Independence Day. So many years ago, we fought and won our independence from England and the freedom to self-govern.
Rugged independence is truly an American concept. It is a powerful thing to know you can depend on yourself and forge new paths for your life.
And yet, the way we, as human beings, function the best is through interdependence.
It has been shown that every species that has evolved did so by cooperating with others both within and outside their species. Each species by itself was struggling to survive. But as different struggling groups joined forces, they were able to together transcend the apparent challenge and allow a new, never before seen manifestation to emerge.
The ones that didn’t cooperate, or allow themselves to receive help, perished!
So often there is fear of losing your sense of self if you join forces with someone else, especially when it comes to living your dream. But, true independence is being so confident in who you are that you are able to join with others to create something so much bigger than the individual parts. You grow as you join another, rather than become erased in solitude.
On the day we celebrate true freedom, I ask you to consider the places you are being asked to let go of the rugged individualism and ultra self-sufficiency in order to allow someone else to help you on your path.
Where are you being asked to reach out your hand and ask for help as a true path to freedom? Pay attention this week and give yourself that gift in order to have the true freedom you deserve.
Here’s to your dream,
