On New Year’s Day, we make resolutions about things we’d like to work on during the year. But a few years ago, my friends and I came up with a new tradition: on the Fourth of July, we ask ourselves what we would like to be independent from this year. Sometimes, the answer is something specific, like “student loan debt” or “my shitty job.” But often it’s more philosophical, like “feeling like I’m never good enough” or “my body image issues.” So, let me ask you, readers: what would you like to be independent from this year? Leave your responses here in the comments. We’ll pick one winner who will get a TheGloss mystery bag (sadly, not this mystery bag) containing an assortment of beauty products and other goodies.
