I have proudly (and fiercely) considered myself an independent woman.  However, I’ve come to realize my Independence came at a cost of being overly self-sufficient and lonely.  A healthier variety of Independence is one of liberty, dignity and freedom.

Last week, in honor of Independence Day, Karen S. Elliott invited me to share about this on her blog at The Word Shark.

Karen S. Elliott is a proofreader and editor and had an Independence Theme all last week.  She felt asking for help was a good start to becoming independent from abuse and dysfunction so she shared my post on Admitting A Need For Help.

Karen has many thought-provoking posts, including What They’ll Find When They Do My Autopsy.  She’s funny, smart and to the point.

If you like to be challenged, I encourage you to visit the Word Shark and meet Karen S. Elliott for yourself.
