Rediscovering your power

“So often in life it is our desire to be loved and we tend to fall victim to our own making. we try so hard to be the best wife, mother, father, child, employer,lover or friend. because we believe it is what is expected in order to have the love of someone else, we compromise who we truly are. For the most part we do this on an unconscious level, and we are totally unaware of our behavior. after awhile, our behavior becomes second nature  and days fall into years  as we continually try to live up to their image of us. Eventually, we find ourselves depressed and unhappy about life  and unfulfilled in our dreams. at this point,  it is difficult to trace back to the why and how we feel this way.

Not only have we given our power and a piece of ourselves to to these people but more important, we have not been true to who we are. We have left our centerness and given away a part of our beautiful self-wholeness. Unfortunately, we can never be truly happy until we live our own lives…”
James van Praagh
