Studies prove that independent people are more happy. Because they are least bothered about what other people think about them or their decisions. Come on!! There were reasons why India struggled for Independence. 

This article will help you to understand and analyze the real meaning of Independence. Here are a few tips on how you can be an independent person.

1. Accept yourself : A lot of people aren’t happy with what they possess. They are in a constant search for something bigger and better. Learn to accept yourself. Be happy with what you are. No matter what the other mortals think about you, be positive. And if you find faults in yourself then try to rectify them. Work towards them. Make yourself a better person. Continue and engage in the practise of learning and improving. Don’t worry about others preferences. Every person has a different perspective. Your perspective shouldn’t be affected because of them.

2. Trust your choices: You think that a specific career can take you to the zenith then  follow that. You want to trust someone, and others don’t trust him or her then go ahead and trust him because trusting someone is completely your choice. You shouldn’t be dependent for that on someone else. If you don’t trust yourself then who will?

3.Emotional Independence: Most of us after we have a relationship start being dependent on them. If you are doing it then stop it right away!! This is not the right way. Just because they don’t like a certain thing that doesn’t mean you stop doing it. Even a few toxic friends. It’s okay to get attached. Few stop speaking, few move away and few die. Because of them you don’t have to change your choices.

4.Accept that life is not bed of roses: You take decisions and it goes wrong. So it’s okay. You don’t have to get disheartened. You don’t have to start depending on others for them to take your decisions. No one knows you better than yourself. It can be very depressing when someone else takes a wrong decision for you. Always remember, bad decisions are good teachers. Every great person has faced some hardship to get where they wanted to.

5.Dump bad influences: Don’t let anyone who takes away your positive energy. Surround yourself with people who generate positive vibes. Make friends who motivate you to be independent. Who push you towards your goal.
