It's OK to be dependent - as we are all humans and humans are social animals, which means we survive as groups, not individuals, but it's not "wise" to disappreciate the persons or things you depend on.


  1. When we live with gratitude that does not happen. Gratitude is the core of happiness.

  2. I agree, Yun! As the poet John Donne said, “No man is an inland…every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” Humans are social animals; we evolved that way and would not have survived as a species without social interaction with other humans. It is wise to appreciate. I also like what Julia said, “gratitude is the core of happiness,” so true!
