Independent (the Dark Side of the Pioneer) – Guest Post by an Anonymous Pioneer

When I am lonely
Or troubled
Or feeling out of sorts
I turn to independence
My escape route

It is a lonely road, for sure
But independence makes me
Feel confident. Self assured!
In control of my own destiny

How can the road be shared
Which is what we really long for
When we spend precious time and energy

Guarding our independence
Fighting back when people try to help

I’ve heard the term “fiercely independent”
The way it looks here is I get fierce
If you question my independence

By poking holes in my theories
And offering support

I desperately want your participation

But I don’t know how to stop rejecting it
