Couldn't have said it better myself. Much prefer to be viewed as too independent.The reason at least for me to want to be super independent is because I know if I rely on people I will rely on them way too much, it's me protecting myself from being too lazy. Because I know I will allow myself to be, and then the people who say "He tries to be too independent." Start saying "He's good for nothing and a moocher." I've experienced this before. Fuck that.
