Putting power in the wrong person’s hand can have dire consequences. We have seen many examples of this notion in our nation’s history. On a smaller scale, we sometimes give other people the power to affect us emotionally. I have been practicing taking power away. My true love ones have cemented their loyalty and care for my well-being into my heart. They have been the ones who have picked me up when I have given the wrong people power. There are people who thrive on controlling others. When I let someone anger me, I gave them control over my emotions at the moment. I have been amazed at how easy it is to just let things be. I have also been amazed at how depressed I would be if I let other human’s flaws cause mine to be prevalent. I am naïve. This is a flaw. I am kind. I am starting to think that may be a damn flaw as well. For people who want to control or manipulate someone, those are the correct flaws to carry. But you want to know what scares people? When you see them for what they really are, and you still love them. When you let them know that you knew their agenda all along, but still loved them. But, back on loner mode I must go. I have a small circle and I extended it, and let some characters into my life. I am learning. But, I need to learn that I do not have to always learn the hard way.
