  1. Wow. What a great story. Thank you so much for sharing it.

    I can certainly understand the need for independence. It’s so hard to find sometimes. We were raised to be pleasers then please ourselves last…except “last” never seemed to come.

    I’ve always been independent in spirit but always felt guilty because I was being told I was selfish. But then I realized those people felt challenged and intimidated by my “freedom”.

    What a eye opener. Thank you again for making me feel proud of how far I’ve come.

    Love your site!

      Thank you, Sheila – I have been waiting to share it at the right moment, when I am finally in the position to help someone else. I so remember that guilt – oh how debilitating that is! Yes, that “last”, never comes, there is always someone or something more important than us, and only when we choose to regain our power will we ever reach what we deserve.
      I am glad you are an independent spirit! You should be proud, indeed! Blessings

  2. Honestly, the strongest thing I empathize with this so strongly about is that having to rely on others for help, especially income!

    I love this story because I give you props on being a military wife and doing all you can in supporting your husband and your family.

    Independence for me, means becoming financially independent. To give me the opportunity to do what I want and when I want without having to second guess if I can do it or not! With that, is also having my goal for this year to be able to do exactly that!

    Thank you for your story and thank you also for sharing.

  3. Hi Claudia
    I really love your story and how you are taking control of your situation. I come from the other perspective the sole income earner (male) in my family. This was a choice so my partner could be at home with our babies as we both thought this was a priority.
    But it is hard when one person brings in the income as there is guilt and resentment from time to time. And I see that guilt in my partner and that loss of independence that came with that decision
    So thank you for reminding me of the these feelings and what can be done.

      Thanks, Wade,
      glad you took the time to read my thoughts. It is wonderful to hear from a spouse who wants to make sure that their partner feels secure, even if there is financial dependence. Open communication will alleviate this resentment – as long as both of you feel that you can express yourself equally, and both of your emotional needs are met, this can very much work. My scenario is sadly the more prevalent story out there – a dependency without communication. So I applaud your effort.
