Se­cure, Not Stirred

Cosmopolitan (India) - - QUIZ -

You choose your mo­ments to rely on oth­ers, and that’s good, says Robert F Born­stein, Ph.D., co-author of Healthy De­pen­dency. You’re also there for your friends when they need you. “This is the op­ti­mal kind of de­pen­dency,” says Mar­garet Clark, Ph.D., pro­fes­sor of psy­chol­ogy at Yale Univer­sity. “You can rely on your friends, but you’re not de­pen­dent.” You feel free to have ad­ven­tures out­side your group—that’s what feel­ing se­cure is all about.
