i was used to think that independence is the best attribute that one person should possess - either physically, mentally, or even emotionally..usually, these independent people are the one who manage to own and understand themselves at their very best level..indeed they aren't easily influenced by surrounding, they are free thinker, and etc..more importantly, they can derive a great sense of worth within a simpler world, true independence would push us to act rather than be acted wonder, in today's society, independent people are the one who are cherished and celebrated as the great human beings..

but, i just realized that independence fails because of its lacking of one aspect - team work..instead of merely using one's full capacity, interdependence requires a very strong team fact, it allows people to cooperate together so to accomplish greater independent people believe in themselves, those with interdependent attitude emphasize on good communication among their team members, and more importantly, they have trust on their peers' capabilities..and, this concept agrees with one famous saying, "two brains are always better than one!"

however, to become interdependent people is very much difficult than we may requires one person to adapt with his/her surroundings, and sometimes, (s)he has to compromise over some of his/her principles so to allow the group to succeed..thus, interdependence demands, not only strong mind, but also resilient heart - sensitive people would be less likely to succeed! hence, interdependence is far more matured, and advanced concept than the independence..

*i found this lesson on "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People," by Stephen Covey!
