Last week, I was talking on facebook about giving away our personal power to someone else. I’m going to share a little story about my daughter but I have a feeling you might be able relate to this at some point in your life.
Here is my story…..
“When you allow a person’s words to upset you, you’re giving away your power. Phillip C Mcgraw”
My daughter decided to be unique and dressed up for Easter. She left for school with a smile on her face. Another student decided to call her a very mean name for being unique with a few others joining in. She came home in tears. We had a long talk about how we should treat others with kindness, that I understood it hurt her heart but this person is also hurting their heart without knowing. I told her to stand proud of how she dressed because it made HER happy. To never change because someone else doesn’t like how she dresses. To speak up and advocate for herself or others when people are being mean. I told her to never give away that power to someone else and allow them to make her feel small or not special. If we love ourselves the way we are and not give that power away. We shine by example and that person will realize that they don’t have the power to hurt you anymore.
I want you to self reflect today about your own personal life and the power you hold to make a change in your life.
- Are you giving away your personal power to someone in your life or at work?
- Do you honestly advocate with others about how you feel when the speak to you or treat you?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above. It’s time to take a deep breath and decide to take your personal power back. You are amazing and you have a lot to offer the people in your life.
