Power is energy. It is the inherent capacity to create, direct, influence or do something so as to bring about what we want. Power in and of itself is wonderful. And it is something that all beings have.
How that power is used is what matters most, because like anything, it can be used for harm and it can be used for good. We will all find ourselves in certain situations where we feel incapable of creating, directing, influencing or doing anything so as to bring about what we want. We feel out of control, disempowered at the mercy of others. It is an invalidation of the reality of the powerlessness inherent in situations where many of the elements involved are beyond your control.
So here is how to realize you have power and how to own it. Obsessing over having all the power implies relationship dysfunction in and of itself. But for the sake of your understanding about personal power, the final thing I ask you to see is that you can choose where and where not to give other people the power in any given situation.
And this, in and of itself is power, because it is a choice! We have placed cookies on your device to help make this website better.

Four simple ways to love yourself and take your power back
They cannot take away choice itself, only choices. All other people can do is to put intense amounts of pressure on you in the hopes that you will use your free will to choose to comply to what they are wanting. This means, in every situation, you must challenge your assumptions about where you think the power lies. I mean deliberate torture, not metaphorical torture. This is coming from someone who knows how they may use your point of greatest weakness and therefore greatest need as leverage.
We have the tendency of telling the story: They made me do it. Throughout history, when people have been unwilling to bend to the will of someone else, they tell them the penalty for non-compliance is death. This is still just narrowing the choices. Many people have chosen throughout history to choose death rather than to comply.
How to take your power back (be empowered)
Many people have been put in dungeons or concentration camps to find out that their captors had no control over their mind, so they still have the choice of what to do with their thoughts. The point is, they still had choice. Because of this, they cannot actually control you.
Compared to these extreme situations, you should be able to see your free will inherent in any less extreme a situation that involves someone putting pressure on you to choose what they want you to choose.
No matter how destroyed your physical body might be, your temporal self must align with your non temporal self in order to die. If the body is destroyed enough, your two points of perspective will often agree upon death. But comas are so often really about this lack of alignment of will between the physical and nonphysical.
There may very well be situations where the pressure they use their power to put you under will cause you to use your free will to choose to comply with what they want you to choose. There are situations where no one can even fault you for making that choice because anyone would. You have every right to feel however you feel about how unfair and immoral it is for them to put that pressure on your free will.
The point is you must never, ever confuse the pressure and force they use with taking away your free will. Get into reality and accept what needs to be accepted as quickly as possible. When we are using our free will to resist what is, we have no power.
10 steps to taking your power back from a toxic person
It is wasted energy. We are always at the effect of others and are fighting the situation we are in, instead of making immediate adjustments in response to it. For example, if someone refuses to accept the reality that the economy is collapsing, the decisions and actions they will take will absolutely not serve them.
It is as pointless as playing a chess game and spending your energy denying that someone has just made a move instead of seeing it, accepting it and based off of that, making a counter move.

We tend to bang against those doors and windows, hoping that if we do that, someone will somehow take mercy on us and decide to open them.

But it may just benefit you much more to put your energy towards looking for other doors and windows that might be open.

In whatever situation you find yourself in, ask yourself: How and in what ways can I create, direct, power or do something so as to bring about what I want? Be true no matter what. To do this, you have to be honest with yourself. No one can control where you put your energy.
