Although I cherish my close friendships, being independent is important to me. To be independent is to feel a sense of autonomy, that I can be okay because of my own choices and efforts.
It is true that I have a lot of needs to fulfill. But it is also true that I ensure my needs are taken care of.
I am the master of my own life. It is invigorating and freeing to recognize that I have complete control over how I experience life. Because I am a strong person, I make my way and provide self-care however I see fit.
Although I have an independent nature, taking care of some of my needs might require asking others for assistance. When I know that I need help, I ask for it without hesitation. I am smart enough to realize when the input of others can assist me to achieve my goals.
Today, knowing I can take care of myself brings contentment to my life. Developing self-awareness about my capacity to take care of my own needs ensures I can continue to do so in the future.
My life is fulfilling and adventurous because I have the gumption to take care of me.
