Imagine that you and your spouse are enjoying the perfect marriage. You have two healthy, beautiful children, a boy and a girl. You have a great house in a great neighborhood. You share the same interests, and you enjoy spending time with one another doing those things.
There is a tremendous sense of pride that comes with solving a problem on your own. You determined what the issues were, and learned what you needed to do to fix it. You may have saved yourself tons of money by fixing up your car or home, and feel that you can take on any challenge that you may face in the future.
