It’s never a good thing. In any field, dependence on anything is avoided. It’s just so easy to rely on the same things, places, shops, people, products.
For people who live in routines, it’s something hard to avoid. For people who never do anything to consciously expand their network of acquaintances, it means depending more on the self. That’s some serious weight to take on.
Everyday is a reminder of the things one needs to do. Unwilling to do anything about it, one wallows in self-pity. More convenient. Hah!
