I talk a lot about empowerment.
The reason is that I used to be/play a victim of my circumstances. I let a chain of events that happened determine my worth and my meaning.
I don’t want you to go through the same thing.
I want you to be able to take control of your life and do, or be, what you can to change what you don’t like about it.
What can you control to make your life more like you want it?
I bring it up today because I have been going through this exact thing and I didn’t even realize it. I was blaming and feeling powerless. I finally realized the reason I was feeling this way was that I was handing my power over rather than taking ownership of my emotions and feelings.
The truth is, no one can hurt you without your permission. They can’t make you feel a certain way unless you allow it.
If someone does something that hurts your feelings, it sucks. Yep, it was sh*#ty. Yep, they shouldn’t have done that. But you get to choose how you react and how it affects you.
Are you going to let it bring you down to be Negative Nancy or Debbie Downer (womp womp), OR are you going to hear it, process it, and let it go?
You know your truth and who you are inside. Take back your power. You own you.
If something bad happens, it’s okay to feel those feelings but, then, you have to pick yourself up and be gangsta.
You HAVE to move forward. You have big dreams and great things to do. Do NOT let someone else’s stuff hold you back. Not only could you be hurting yourself but you could be holding back something that could help other people out. That’s something to think on.
