Whenever we believe we need something from another to be okay - approval, acceptance, attention, love, whatever it is - we give our power and peace away to them. We unconsciously subjugate ourselves before a fellow human being and hand them the keys to our psychological, emotional and sometimes physical wellbeing.

Beneath surface differences, we are all equal - all human. No other person is above or beneath us. Once we've grown out of childhood and become independently capable, we do not need to depend on others in that way anymore. We can provide those things for ourselves. Relationships can then be based on mutual sharing rather than dependence. On mutual love rather than fear.
