“If you want a thing done well, do it yourself” Napoleon Bonarparte.
We are built to survive on our own, yet simultaneously could be isolated indefinitely — we both need and don’t need other people. We ought to learn how to rely on oneself and not on friends and family. There will come a time when they let you down or are no longer there to lend you support.
Learning to stand on your own two feet all the time will make it easier to stand alone when things get ugly and there is no one there to help you. This is not to say that we shouldn’t ever ask for help, we must be ready to take on any burden ourselves if that is the only possible solution.
