One of the reasons why it's good to be independent of your partner in a relationship is because it makes you respectable.
It gives you a feeling of self-worth because you don't need anyone to make you happy or feel successful.
You are comfortable doing things by yourself.
These are three ways you can be independent of your partner.
Be Satisfied With Yourself
You can be independent when you choose to be satisfied with being alone. You don't need anyone to keep your company.
If you are proving to your partner that you are independent, but you have someone else you are secretly dating, that's not independence.
Being independent means you are happy to be alone. You can make yourself happy by engaging in some profitable activities behind closed doors.
Pay Your Own Bills
If you want to prove to your partner that you are independent, stand on your feet and pay your bills by yourself.
Use your money to buy anything you need without asking your partner for it. When you are financially independent, you feel very complete and confident without your partner.
Don't Seek Attention
When you don't seek your partner's attention, it means you are emotionally independent. You don't do or say things to make your partner notice you.
The desire to be noticed by someone means you are not yet emotionally independent of the person.
However, when you are not emotionally dependent on your partner, it means you don't need him or her to notice you before you feel good about yourself.
Don't Expect Anything
If you can discipline your mind to a point that you don't expect anything from your partner, it will make you become independent of him or her.
Don't expect him or her to call you or send a message. This means you are not thinking of what they are obliged to do for you.
