When you only rely on yourself you’re able to account for the unknown. Externals can come and go at any moment, but you always have yourself.
In practical terms, you should do what you set out to do no matter what. No matter if your best friend cancels on you, if your girlfriend dumps you, or if the sky starts to fall. You always want to be that unrelenting force that moves forward no matter what.
Only relying on yourself, so as to account for the unknown, will allow you to appreciate people and the environment more (when they’re reliable), and not be disappointed or take things personally when things don’t go your way (when they’re unreliable), as it was all accounted for.
With all this said, you should always strive to build the most reliable relationships and environment possible, so as to make the most out of life.
”The man who has anticipated the coming of troubles takes away their power when they arrive. ― Seneca
