Welcome to 2023: the year of Self-Empowerment.
Empowerment is the degree of autonomy and self-determination in people and in communities. This enables them to represent their interests in a responsible and self-determined way, acting on their own authority. It is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights. Empowerment as action refers both to the process of self-empowerment and to professional support of people, which enables them to overcome their sense of powerlessness and lack of influence, and to recognize and use their resources.
It’s time to declare the Covid-19 Pandemic over. In other words, stop, take a break, and reflect on the past few years of craziness. It has come at great cost to so many of us on a personal level, regardless of the path we chose to take, i.e. compliance or resistance.
Did you choose self-empowerment? Or to comply?
If you chose to comply, ask yourself to what extent have you outsourced your self-care, personal accountability, ownership and responsibility?
More importantly, when it comes to making decisions, how much have you relied on the dictates and “safe and effective” reassurances of others, such as friends, family, employers, government approved experts, scientists and unelected officials?
Or did you actually make an informed consent decision by investing the time and energy into doing your own research, thinking critically, and not allowing others to bully, coerce or mandate you into making your final decision? This is the path of self-empowerment.
Make this the Year of Self-Empowerment
It’s not too late!
