independence

this is an excerpt from a book that i’m reading

Clearly, it is not the highest action to deliberately destroy or abuse one another.  Clearly, it is equally inappropriate to neglect the needs of those you have caused to be dependent on you.

Your job is to render them independent; to teach them as quickly and completely as possible how to get along without you.  For you are no more blessing to them so long as they need you to survive, but bless them truly only in the moment they realize you are unnecessary.
