“People are intimidated by independence. They will find it hard to approach you and hard to relate to you. They will assume you don’t need anyone or anything, but that is not true. It is hard, if not impossible, to find a balance.”
Thanks Mom, this explains so much. We are built from the same mold; I am my mother's daughter.
And thanks to the people in my life who recognize this, and do what they can to help me find the balance.
