Power, it can be the strongest thing there is.
There are different types of power.
A president hs power over a country.
A boss has power over their employees.
An abuser has power over their victim.
A mother has power over her children.
I used to be victim, powered by my husband. I finally escaped that power to then be powered by my mother. She thinks as my mother,she has the right to tell me how to raise my kids. To criticize everything I do as an adult.
The first was easier to get out of. The latter I am still working on. I am learning to block it out and do what I want anyways.
So finally I have power over my own life.
