Independence! what does this mean? The freedom from control, influence, support or the like of others. This here is a very touchy subject to some young ladies because who doesn't want independence. No matter how depended you are to some one or something there is still something in you that screams independence. Honestly there is nothing like knowing you are in control of your life and if anything goes wrong it's from the will of god. I have just turned 18 yesterday (YAY!) but I had a glimpse of independence when I turned 17 last year. I had gotten my little job at McDonald's all though I wanted to work in retail the mall was really far from where I stayed.
There were a bunch of fast food restaurant around town so it only made sense plus a few of my friends already worked there. So I took a step to apply after I saw a few of my friends providing for there selves. I was like I can do it too after a week and a half I got called down for an interview than I got the job. I was so excited to work and get paid because prom and all that was coming up so as a senior I needed to provide for all my expenses. Honestly after a month or so I was tired of juggling school work and my actual work. I was slightly regretting having my job but I told myself it works out all in the end. As you can see I was rushing for independence at a really young age it felt good but slightly draining. So if you are in high school and your guardians provide for you rethink your decision of working because it might distract you from studies. As for now I am ready to take on independence again and I actually feel ready. There is nothing wrong with falling at independence because that is what life is about you live and you learn and I sure did.
