☆ self-sufficient 自己満足の
Our topic this month is “Independence” so this is an important word to know: self-sufficient. My dictionary says that someone who is self-sufficient is independent and “able to live happily without anyone else.” What do you think about this idea? I think it is strange to say “happily” without anyone else.
Of course, I am self-sufficient, and could support myself in all areas of my life without needing help from anyone… however, I’m not sure I could do this “happily” … what do you think? I’d much rather have friends and family in my life, wouldn’t you?
