When we finally reclaim our power from those to whom we have erroneously handed it over, it's like unveiling the Wizard of Oz behind his curtain. We have made someone, or a group of someones, bigger than they are. We have lived in fear of them, of getting in trouble, of not being liked, or approved of, or whatever it is.
But we are more powerful than we realize, and we are not meant to crawl and beg. We must learn to stand on our own feet and speak our truth. And if our truth is unpopular, well then, so be it. Far better to be unpopular than to live under the daily lash of self-betrayal.
I hold my power and honor my truth.
