“It’s stupid to say bad things about your neighbors. If you are sensible, you will keep quiet.”
There may come a time that you will need your neighbors. What sets human apart from other life forms on earth is our big brain. Our big brain can predict the outcomes of future events. Do we use this ability to predict these out comes as much as we should? Most do not.
Have you complained about your neighbors? It is easy to complain about your neighbors. Many emotions can be manifested when looking towards them.
Self-Reliance will only take you so far though life. We will be put into situations from time to time where we need outside help. If you burn the bridge before it is needed you may find it difficult to get across the difficulty that lies beneath.
