Comments

Steven Covey, author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, recognizes three levels of emotional maturity: dependence, independence and interdependence. Such a statement sends the modern woman into a tail spin, because the Feminist Movement has taught us to have it all… be all… the independent woman. And, after all of our efforts to achieve and grow as independent women, now we are mediocre on the emotional maturity scale?! How do successful women learn the benefit of interdependence in relationships. I address this issue at http://californiafamilylaw-orangecounty.blogspot.com/2010/10/successful-professional-women-and.html
