There are times in our lives when we get taken advantage of, or “played”.
Sometimes it is by people close to us, who know exactly what buttons to push. Other times it is by people who are simply mentally stronger. Often it is by people who have something you need or want.
All of these instances have one thing in common: POWER!
As a woman, I find that power is easily lost, or taken. It is the nature of the game. It doesn’t matter how many “big brother” types you have surrounding or protecting you, at the end of the day, it’s just you against the world.
There comes a point in these situations where the veils part and you can see it for what it really is: you are being played like a violin and you are letting them do it.
This moment of clarity is the time for you to stand in your own power and come out fighting. Don’t feel like you need to be polite about it. Forget what they tell you about how “nice” women act. I give you permission to use your teeth and claws if you have to.
I only have one thing to say to those in my life who have tried to take my power away…
I’m taking my violin back now, thank you!
