I rate independence extremely highly, and so did my grandmother. Unfortunately, I watched her gradually lose that independence as she got older, and
I could tell she hated it and felt like a burden. She had a large and loving family that respected her immensely and only wanted the best for her,
and we did everything we could for her. I think, if you also make family and community big priorities as well, the people who love you will step in
if you are so fortunate/unfortunate that you live long enough to lose independence. Don't be afraid, love and be loved, and provide support while you
can, so those around you learn to do the same.
