We all use our power in life which can bring harmony to people and situations or not. The right use of power is to heal not harm even if that means we walk away to another chapter in life. We understand we are all evolving and need compassion when we make mistakes. We use power wisely if we help people in our communities in ways that do not detract from their independence or privacy. We offer advice based on kindness and tact if asked. We refrain from giving unsolicited advice to boost our own egos. The wise use of power in wider society is to help the vulnerable without treating them as less than ourselves simply because they are not as fortunate. We are all students in life learning from each other. with relationships the best mirror for our own growth. In our lives, the wise use of power is to find ways to share skills and experience and not to discard them as irrelevant. It is valuing yourself and your contribution without feeling you are not good enough. It is thinking before you act or speak. It is speaking your truth respectfully , owning it, and realizing it is your take on reality and may not be everyone's. Standing in your own power can be frightening but it is freeing as well. With freedom comes responsibility. We need to use it well and wisely.
