To feel empowered is to what? hum, who knows. I feel empowered when I help people. I feel empowered when I accomplish something or when I speak my mind. I feel empowered by truth. I think sometimes we down play that feeling of empowerment because we don’t want others to feel less empowered then we are. As if to believe that that the person who is feeling empowered at the time has more over the other person. A little complicated if you ask me.
Feeling empowered gives you strength and courage to overcome many obstacles. Kind of makes you feel invincible, like no other opinion matters in your life accept your own. That is, as long as that person is making the sound decisions.
To feel empowered is to have empathy. Empathy is the capacity to understand or feel what another being is experiencing from within. When you begin to feel empathy for others you will begin to feel empowered for yourself. Helping others is one way to feel empathy and empowered all at the same time. That is why the word ‘Empathy’ is in the word Empowered. To feel for someone else and help others that are in need. That is empowerment. To love yourself and all that you are, NO QUESTIONS asked. That my friend is empowerment. To never disregard your own feelings just to make others feel better, that is empowerment. To never speak up is to say that you don’t value your words as being truth. The Universe says “We are the way, the truth and the light” , and well if that doesn’t scream EMPOWERMENT, then I don’t know what does.
What is Empowerment mean to you.
