When a woman leads an empowered life it means she’s taking care of her wants and needs.
For example, maybe you really love to dance! You love to dance so much that you find yourself moving to the music wherever you go. You might even find yourself moving to the music while you are walking down the aisle in the grocery store!
Then, you meet a guy… and you fall head over heels for this guy. You love being with this guy and you really feel like he loves being with you. One day the two of you are walking down the aisle of the grocery store and your favorite song starts playing overhead and you’re so happy that you start moving to the music!
But your guy gets a horrified look on his face and says, “What are you doing?” And you look at him, smile and say, “I’m dancing. I’m really happy and I’m dancing!” And then your guy says, “Please don’t do that here, you look ridiculous.” So a little piece of you is saddened but you think, “Hey, this guy is worth it, I won’t dance in the store if it bothers him!”
As time goes by, there are other things about you that bother him. Rather than staying in your power, you feel that you’re showing him love and understanding if you do what makes him happy.
Your disempowerment is so gradual that you hardly realize it until one day, you find you just aren’t as happy as you used to be and you’re trying to figure out why. Someone can say to you, “Hey, how come I never see you dancing anymore?” and you answer, “oh, I gave that up a long time ago!”
Often times a woman will give away her power to please another person but the process is so gradual it goes unnoticed.
If you’re feeling disempowered in one or more areas of your life, the best way to understand why you’re feeling disempowered is to pay attention to your feelings. Your feelings will give you the answers every single time. When you’re feeling sad, anxious, fearful or depressed these are surface emotions telling you that you have an underlying feeling that needs to be dealt with in order to feel more empowered.
Give yourself permission to take some time to understand what you’re feeling and what your feelings are trying to tell you.
Being disempowered can be a gradual process and it will take time to regain what has been lost.
Be Self-Loving because when you practice putting your needs and wants first, you will learn the value of never again allowing someone to rob you of what is most important to you!
We teach our children to stay away from bullies because we know it disempowers them. Let’s empower women to say “no” to anyone who wants us to be less than who we are! This includes anyone who makes you feel disempowered in a relationship, your career, friends, family members, social situations or parents.
Show the world that you are a gift and every gift should be treated with care and love!
