When you say that "I have no choice" or
"Sometimes in life we... are faced with situations in which there is no choice, other than to accept the inevitable, over which we have no control" is a lie.
Be honest with yourself as to why you are choosing to do a particular thing. Then, do it gladly, knowing that you are always getting to do what you want. You can choose. So live life and be truthful to yourself. Isn’t that power?
And by NOT making a choice, that IS actually making a choice; that will have its own repercussions that you are usually aware of when you make the choice to not choose.
Power can never be given, for it is a part of us in every way, shape and form. Only we can free ourselves with the choices we make as we create ours everyday.
