At first glance, this may seem like a simple topic, but if you look further you may be surprised by what surfaces. There are different types of independence as well as different levels of independence. We will be exploring physical vs. emotional independence as well as the spectrum from enmeshed relationships to individuals who struggle to accept support. This topic impacts our personal and professional relationships and is often complex in nature. Independence is a natural part of personal growth, but can be disrupted for a variety of reasons throughout a lifespan. The response and consequential outcome is often effected by personality, self-esteem, and perceived support systems.
Our goal is to help you find a healthy balance of independence and support in your personal and professional life. This balance will lead to healthier relationships and increased personal fulfillment.
We invite you, your friends, and your family to take this self-reflective journey with us throughout the month of July. We will be providing related articles, tools, resources, and even a little humor.
