“Be Emotionally Self-Sufficient So You Can Draw Closer to Other People.”

Further Secrets of Adulthood:

This reminds me of a line from Bob Dylan's haunting memoir, Chronicles: Volume One, where he write, about his wife:

"The one thing about her that I always loved was that she was never one of those people who thinks that someone else is the answer to their happiness. Me or anybody else. She's always had her own built-in happiness."

Do you agree--that being emotionally self-sufficient helps you to be closer to others? Or disagree?
