For those people who are not familiar about DIY, it stands for “do-it-yourself”. I usually practice this kind of attitude because my life is not totally dependent to others. My parents had inculcated during my childhood years that I should do things for myself. It is a part of learning to be independent. I had noticed that some people cannot do things for themselves. As if, they cannot decide for themselves and rely to others’ opinions. It is fine to ask some opinions, but they need also to decided what’s really best for them. Thus, he or she kept sucking up to their friends. They need to grow up and be independent. Image Credit: pixabay.com

If you know me personally, i am a true diy guy, i hate depending on others, I do things myself whenever I can and see to it that people who help me for things I cannot do are well reciprocated, Im prepper and I hate depending on a Government that could not provide us with anything anyway.

The part of government thing, I anticipate that it will become worse for the worst. You know what I mean. We need to be DIY at all times.

I try to do as much as I can. Most of the time DIY is fine by me.

We only get help or use outsiders if we cannot possibly do the task ourselves. We have always been into DIY since we first married.

I think that is so ideal in a relationship. In some cases, either of the partners tends to be dependent on each other.

@Shavkat And some have no idea how to fix anything - and maybe they've never had the chance to try either. My family were farmers so we were pretty much hands on everything and Vin's Dad could do a lot of things too so Vince picked up some skills from his father.

@shavkat My mom refuse to let me do things for myself or even leave the house with a friend that kept me stuck in my room reading a book. I was only allowed out with a family member/ It is a very sore spot for me that i don't have to ask my sister I can go to book club or buy something. I am getting better i walk right blocks each way to the library! I have to go to therapy for unresolved grief issues, and i need to get a lot off my chest my doctor told me on my emergency visit this past Tuesday

I think it is. You do-it-yourself of cooking and painting without any assistance.

It is better to do something than being sedentary in nature.

I think that a good quality we can have as Filipinos. We were also trained to be independent as young as high school.

I am all about DIY...and with everyone online who are willing to share their ideas on how they are doing DIY's ....it has become easier to fix ones problems by oneself.

Parents do children no favors by making them dependent upon parents on others. I am a bit DIY person.

I think it is fine to ask things tat can't be possible. If totally dependent, then that's another story.
