Self-reliance is so much more than having enough food storage, it's having the abilities to find solutions to our problems and sometimes having the skills to endure the. It's a process, a lot like the process of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly.

Adversity is difficult to traverse, but if you look at nature adversity makes things better as a result of enduring the adversity.
Take the butterfly, without adversity the catepillar would stay a creapy, crawly bug. But through the process of its transition, we have the beautiful, but short lived butterfly.
How about coal. without adversity, coal would stay black, crumbly and ugly, but with adversity we can have diamonds for our wedding rings.
We need adversity to obtain eternal life. Without adversity we can not grow, and develop and become stronger spiritual beings.

This handout may help you. I decided to merge a couple of the questions, about the premortal existance and why do my choices matter. We know which choice we made in the Pre Mortal existence, the challenge is to continue to make choices that will help us stay on the path we desired when we made that choice. Clearly, we each wanted to return to live with our Heavenly Father, and our family members who have gone before us.
