Dependency


There are four types of relationships
Relationship types

Dependence
  • Leaves you at the mercy of others
  • Not great for your self esteem. 

Independence  
  • Basically means doing everything yourself, which is never as efficient as using the leverage and skills of others.

Dependency worst form of relationship, but interdependency creates informal relationships. 
Welfare dependency breaks informal organisations, this affects people that are not dependant as they are part of those informal organisations.

Teach a man to fish and you will feed him for life.

Trade not aid.
Jobs not handouts.

In today's world the state and beneficiary's are codependent, depending on each other for survival.
