Even the most confident and positive people can have days where they feel emotionally defeated and out of control. Being self-empowered is not a magic state of being that is achieved only once. It is an approach to life, which needs constant work, assessment, and care.
You will notice that some days you won’t feel empowered, but it’s very important to take extra care of yourself. These are the days when you need a little extra support and attention. So let’s see what you can do when you’re not feeling in control over your life.
1. Pay Attention to Your Thoughts and Words
There is a chance that some negative self-talk to be into your subconscious mind. Spend some quiet time being aware of your thoughts and actions. How have you stopped treating yourself well? What caused that change? Awareness is the first step to regaining your sense of wellbeing and empowerment.
2. Forget and forgive
If you are feeling out of control or a loss of empowerment, it may be because you’ve made a mistake or you feel like someone has harmed you. It would be better for you to forgive yourself for the mistake, or to forgive other people, and to move forward. Use it as an opportunity to learn more about yourself and apply that information to your future decisions and behaviors.
3. Treat Yourself Well
Forgiveness is part of treating yourself well. Depending on what has caused your recent situation, you might also give yourself a little extra room and time to regain balance. For example, if you are feeling bad about your physical empowerment because you cheated on your diet, then forgive yourself and treat yourself to a healthy and positive meal that nourishes your body and your spirit.
If you made a mistake at work, you might forgive yourself and then treat yourself well by enjoying a hot bath, or going for a walk or something that brings you joy.
4. Take Positive Action
Taking positive actions is vital in order to regain your sense of empowerment.
When you are having a difficult day, week, or month, then identify what you can do to make it better and take action.
Even in the worst situations that life throws at you, you always need to control how you respond, react, and feel. It means that you will control your thoughts, actions, and how you respond to the world around you. Self-empowerment means not forgetting that you are in charge of your life. Sometimes it is very easy to forget it. However, when it happens, be aware, treat yourself well, and take positive action to turn it around and to be happy and confident again.
