Truth and consequences  
Yesterday althaea pointed out something very important to me on the phone.

That being able to depend only on yourself, knowing that that you are on your own in all things, becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy.

How does one manage that life without being trapped there forever?

how about this: be ready to depend upon yourself for most things, but allow room for the possibility of being pleasantly surprised.

just a theory. i stumble quite a bit, and i'm no good at accepting help most of the time.

I personally think we have to make an effort not to lose our ability to trust in others. Being independent and not requiring anyone else leaves you open to meeting others.

Not allowing others to assist, or allow folks to make mistakes (depending on the severity) DOES leave you open to a self imposed ... exile?

I know something I've learned from the kids is that dependability is NOT an innate trait for most folks - its learned behavior.

Just my loud and unasked for opinion.
