Here are three things you could do to let go of your independence and find a partner:
1. Realise that while being independent will bring you some benefits, it will not bring you relationship happiness. To be in a relationship you must give and receive love and you cannot do this if your heart is defended - as it will have to be to maintain your independence.
2. To be independent is not natural - your independence is a defence to stop you getting hurt. It is time to start taking some emotional risks. It is through navigating the ups and downs that happen in all relationships that you will grow and find more love.
3. Your natural state is interdependence - a state of self-love and connection. As soon as you embrace this about yourself, a partner will appear in your life because you will have become more authentic and this will make you more open and more attractive to a potential partner.
