You are so powerful. I know all about the various limiting beliefs that we tell ourselves. I’ve had interactions with people who keep wanting to tell me how powerless we all are. The most pushback I get is concerning racism, and the idea of mine that the Black Lives Matter movement has a victim mentality. Our society keeps telling us how difficult a problem like racism is to solve. If you are told your whole life that it’s difficult and that it’s systemic, then that is what you will believe even when/if it’s not true. Of course, this self-defeating mindset is not limited to racism.… Read More »You are Powerful
Other People Have No Power to Offend You There is a commonly held belief that other people can offend you. In this article I’m going to discuss why that is not the case, which might anger you or relieve you. If you want there to be a scapegoat for why you get mad, rather than to take personal responsibility for getting upset, then you won’t like the idea that no one can offend you. If, however, you want to live a life in which you never get offended, because you would be happier, then you would be relieved to hear that this is possible.

They attempt to control others through… Read More »Cleaning the World: What Can I Do?
2020 has been the perfect year for hindsight concerning the effects of either taking personal responsibility or blame shifting / scapegoating. When you believe there is something “bad” happening in your personal reality and it is someone else’s fault rather than your own, you are shifting the blame from you onto someone else. This is also called scapegoating. Scapegoating is the practice of singling out a person or group for unmerited blame and consequent negative treatment. Of course, people will say (and truly believe) that the blame is merited when they’re doing it. I’m sure you’ve done this, because, even though I’m very aware of… Read More »Taking Personal Responsibility Empowers & Frees You

Every day in our lives we run into people, places, things, or events that shine a light on where we feel fear or a lack of control or power. Those situations tend to be very personal. Other people are often not feeling the same way as you do to the same events. But, in 2020 we have had a major event occur that has caused many of us to go through the same emotional triggers. Some people are facing their fears alone when they come up. Some are facing them with others.
