Empower Myself is my own self empowering journey.
Sometimes life can throw you a curve ball. Just when you think it is what you have always wanted, it becomes the one thing you want to avoid. I went from one alcoholic to another. Why did I do that? I believed it was meant to be. There were so many signs that this was where I belonged. But what I think and dream and hope became all too different. I suffered some horrendous emotional abuse, witnessed it, protected others from it, as well as physical violence. Wow, I had a real life challenge. Gone was my simple routine predictable life. I had this other situation that I needed to get out of, quick fast. However there were many factors involved in not being able to leave. Much more of my posts will cover some individual topics of my circumstances, as my story is very long and intricate. But suffice to say, I am in a better position now, and I can work on my problems because I stood up in the mirror and said “Today I am going to Empower Myself”.
Sometimes we just don’t know where to start. We don’t know how to empower ourselves. Often we don’t even understand what that means. I was a person trodden on not just from the outside, but from the inside. It took much counselling and determination to bring back the person I know I am. Not who I can be. Who I AM. Out there, there are so many of you who suffer like I have, in fact, it wasn’t until my own sufferings that I realised this happens to other people. I want to ensure that each and every one of you will say to yourself in the mirror “I will Empower Myself”. I want you to feel good about yourself so the depression can lift, so that the feelings can be tamed, still acknowledged, but reduced to something you can handle.
There is much you can do to re-invent yourself. Become the person you know you are, develop it, embrace it, empower it. You no longer need to be an emotional mess, just step up and accept that for whatever reason, this happened in your life, but moving forward is the only direction we all have, so take advantage of it. Take care of your own needs, so that you will be that person you want to be when you look in the mirror. Become it. I did. I looked and said I’m going to Empower Myself.
