Taking Your Power Back

There is this negative emotion you feel. This pain is controlling you. Whether it’s anger, sadness, bitterness, or jealousy, it’s there. Here’s the thing: It’s there, you feel it, and that’s okay. When you acknowledge that negative emotion you feel, that’s the first step in taking that power back. It’s no longer creeping in your subconscious. Take it back from the emotion itself and take it back from the person and/or situation that triggered this emotion. You’re acknowledging it, bringing it to the light, so it can no longer hide and use you without you being aware. 

Take Your Power Back

Next, whatever triggered it happened already. It’s spilled milk. Ask yourself: Do I want to dwell on something that’s gone, over and done with? or do I want to think about what I could be doing to better myself, and know better for next time, and move on with my life? If you chose the second one, you just took your power back. Now in that moment, the negative emotion no longer controls you in a negative way. I know it’s not as easy as it sounds but with a lot of practice, anyone can master the ‘taking your power back’ technique. If you are being truly honest with yourself, that makes things a lot easier. You don’t have to hide this feeling from yourself, and you know you don’t want to feel this way. You acknowledged it, you accepted it, and you chose to leave it completely alone or use it in a more positive way, to better yourself.
