"I Decide How You Make Me Feel: A Journey of Self-Discovery and Empowerment"



In 2019, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery and personal and professional development that reshaped the very core of who I am. Looking back, the transformation is striking, like shedding chains of victimhood and stepping into a realm of empowerment. Today, I stand firm in the belief that I decide how you make me feel.


Gone are the days of surrendering my emotional wellbeing to external circumstances. No longer am I a captive of circumstances or the opinions of others. Instead, I've embraced the power within me to dictate my own emotional landscape.


Some days, it's a conscious choice to indulge in self-pity, acknowledging my emotions but never allowing them to consume me. Other days, I'm as impenetrable as a fortress, resilient against any negativity that dares to approach. And then there are days when I reflect back the energy I receive, responding with grace and understanding.


Regardless of the intentions behind words or actions directed my way, I hold the reins to my emotional responses. I choose how to receive them and how to respond. This power isn't about controlling the external world; it's about mastering my internal world.


In a world where it's easy to feel tossed around by the tides of circumstance, this realisation is revolutionary. It's a reminder that amidst the chaos, I am the architect of my emotional reality. I possess the agency to shape my experiences, to glean wisdom from challenges, and to find joy in the everyday moments.


So, to those who cross my path with kindness, I choose gratitude. To those who bring negativity, I choose empathy and understanding. And to the challenges that inevitably arise, I choose resilience and growth.


In every interaction, I affirm: I decide how you make me feel. And in doing so, I reclaim my power, my autonomy, and my ability to thrive.


Join me in this journey of self-empowerment. Together, let's embrace the freedom that comes from owning our emotional responses and shaping our own narratives.


After all, the most compelling stories are those of triumph over adversity, of growth amidst struggle, and of empowerment in the face of uncertainty. And this, my friends, is a story we all have the power to write.


Let's write it together.
