Many of you have a tendency to take other’s help while doing any work , this tendency of dependency often put you back and sometimes in trouble. There are situations where you lack the expertise and you seek help of other who knows but if you ponder over it, there are many things that you can do it yourself without the expert or external help. Take a simple example of booking flight ticket,most of you still depend on ticket booking agencies to book your ticket but the fact is that you can simply do it online, wherein you can explore more and cheap options. Some of you may say that what if the person is not well versed with computer and internet? Here comes the concept of being self dependent, for example you need to book a ticket in the middle of night because of some emergency, then you have to wait till the booking offices open or need to rush to the airport to get it but if you know how to book tickets online you can avoid the trouble.
It is true that you cannot be totally self dependent as living in the society we all are dependent on each other but the concept of self dependency says that you should try to do your work by yourself as much as possible.
In today’s automated world this concept is even more worthy. You have dry cleaners, dishwashers, washing machine,juicer, mixer, oven to do your household chores but have you ever thought that they are limiting your physical movement and due to lack of it your body is loosing flexibility, you have muscle cramps and joint pains. Doing household chores is a kind of exercise which helps in good blood circulation.
Similarly you have computers and calculators at home which is limiting your calculating, analyzing and writing capacity but what if one day your children will ask you how to write an essay…… you will have a number of spelling mistakes, as you have been habituated with looking for grammar in Microsoft word and moreover your handwriting will be bad.
Self dependency is a way of life which requires a constant effort and it comes from within. It is a determination of doing things by oneself and those who can learn it can lead a healthy life.
Self dependency means doing work by hand, so you need to do household chores by hand, like brooming and sweeping, washing cloths,watering plants in garden, all help in movement of different parts of body and improves blood circulation, strengthen muscles, keep digestive system stable.
Self dependency means avoiding medicines as far as possible and let the body’s natural system to work.
Self dependency means a way of thinking that you have to work to achieve your goals and this negates all negativity and infuse a positive energy.
