If you’re always reacting to how other people treat you then you’re allowing them (giving them the power) to create you.
You’re freely giving them the power that is your birthright, that’s why you have to be steadfast in who you are and who you desire to be. Don’t let anyone steal the you you desire to be, your joy, or your good name. Don’t freely give away your personal power either, because that’s what’s happening when you aren’t utilizing anger to serve you. You’re freely allowing someone to create you.
Use your power to create you as powerful as the sun. Man hasn’t created anything as powerful as the sun. The sun is millions of miles away from earth yet it is still so brilliant–we see it in the sky. Aim to concentrate your power as brilliantly where none can defile you, destroy you, out-power you, outshine you, weaken you.
It’s challenging, but Decide to behave (respond) how you desire to and not how someone else is aiming for you to behave. Each time you don’t you are a voluntary slave and not the rightful Master of yourself.
