i thought this was too awesome, i had to share.
read this last nite -
'when we were not allowed to have power in childhood -
that is, denied our rightful A of allowing - two long lasting
results can occur. first, we might, early on, have turned to
control as an alternative. control is the poor man's version of
power. we try to gain some sense of power by controlling
our environment and other people. control arises from compulsion
and increases our fear; true power arises from self -trust and
increases our self esteem.'
i totally loved the 'poor man's power' thing.....that just makes
me laugh. no kidding. no kidding.
thought it was helpful to remember.......
that's from david richo's 'daring to trust'
