Self Reliance

Self reliance, or as I call it the key to security and peace of mind. Who doesn’t love a sense of accomplishment? It’s awesome, right? The satisfaction that comes with taking on, and successfully completing a task all by yourself. Wow.

An unfortunate consequence of our modern conveniences is that there is less emphasis placed on self reliance. When there are apps that can tell you which public restrooms are adequate for use, and GPS tells you which way is north, it’s no wonder why we as a whole, value being self sufficient so little. But when you give up your independence it is very easy to slip into complacency.
