Self-Reliace Deficit Disorder (SRDD) – A disease. Symptoms include having the inability to provide for any basic needs with materials from immediate surroundings, needing significant infrastructure to accomplish everyday tasks, and a generalized can’t-do attitude.
I made up this term last week when writing about our upcoming kids program and people started talking about it, so I decided it needed its own post. Taking a cue from the medical community and how they define things, it’s a nicer way to say helpless.
The good news is SRDD can be cured! Learn to provide for your basic needs with simple tools and solutions. The first step is to try and do a few things for yourself. Next, get more experience doing this. Soon you will no longer be afflicted with SRDD. You’ll also be more capable and confident. It may even be fun.
