Reply To: When to surrender
A thing I have been contemplating on recently is compassion vs dependence. Being good to people, but not needing any sort of reaction from them. You treat people with respect and trust, but if that trust is broken you simply walk away?
The issue of how much time/ effort to invest in friends/ loved ones has always been a difficult one for me. On the one hand, you have your goals and you can be pretty independent. On the other hand, it is good to be social, but that might breed neediness.
