But… I was wrong. I wasn’t independent. I was relying on the job, the company I was working for. Providing them my time, my energy, all that in order to get money and be the unrestrained woman I thought I was. Which is ridiculous. I rely on others to get in my purse what I trade with my sweat, my life resources.I am a free woman – Emilie’s Moments of Wonder (wordpress.com)

Thanks for using some of my words. I am glad I am able to inspire 🙂

Thanks for stopping by (& acknowledging my post via the trackback on your blog)! 😀
This is a very insightful perspective on money, dependence, independence, etc. I myself have a degree in economics (alongside some other degrees 😉 ) … and I feel the word “interdependence” is not as good as a concept I refer to as “interreliance” (as in: we have only ourselves to blame for what we ourselves *rely* on).
