Declaring Independence: Winning the Approval of God, Not People
There’s a good chance that if you have anything at all going for you, someone will come along and try to use your good fortune, or your good name, or your hard work, or your talent, or your looks, or your money for their own selfish purposes. You have a choice. You don't have to allow yourself to be used by those around you. Independent people recognize this and refuse to let it happen because they have set in place in their lives proper boundaries.
