Stout Advice: Dependence

Dependence is a great thing but often can be associated as a negative word. One of the most important stages of growth for a human is the state of dependence, when you realize you are only one person. When you try to live life by yourself, you can get broken down by adversity. When you depend on people, it creates humility. Learning to depend on people leads to a whole new growth process. It refines you into a better version of yourself. We were meant to live life as teams, not live by ourselves. We are meant to have relationships.

Action items:

  1. Identify times when you were dependent.
  2. What was the outcome of your dependence?
