You were hurt by someone who had authority over you at a time when you were so young you didn’t have enough power to stop the abuse. You quickly learned your well-being was dependent upon not speaking up. Child abuse forced you to give up your power, voice, and safety.
This is why many survivors end up in abusive relationships. Even as adults, they don’t realize they can speak up for themselves, set healthy boundaries, and protect themselves from abusers. Instead, they continue to suffer in silence.
Yet you do have power. Lots of it! To connect with that power, change the false inner belief that you’re powerless.
But what is your power? It’s the ability to connect with any healthy, nourishing thing that makes you feel good about yourself. The more you connect with these things, the more power you’ll rediscover within yourself.
However, let me warn you. Reconnecting with your power will upset the dynamic of your relationships. No doubt about it. Some of your family and friends will be thrilled for you. Others will be horrified.
Don’t worry. This happens to everyone. Yes, I lost a few friends along the way. I discovered the ones who stuck with me and supported me were the ones who truly loved and valued me. The others only liked me if I bent over backwards to please them or take care of them. Good riddance, right?
Today, all my relationships are healthy ones. I have the power to take care of myself, to speak up when I need to protect a boundary, or to ask for help.
You have this same power inside you. Explore the truth of who you are, what makes you happy, what brings you joy, and what gives you peace. Only when you do these things for yourself will you reconnect with your inner personal power.
Practice this kind of self-care and self-love every day. Soon you’ll realize the power inside you isn’t just an average power. It’s a superpower. And it’s all YOURS!
