Living an Empowered Life
What does it mean to live an empowered life? If you look up the definition of empower you might get something like this: “to give power or authority to.”
I don’t know. That sounds like the opposite of empowerment. I don’t wish to give my power or authority to anyone.
I prefer this one, “to make someone stronger and more confident, especially in
controlling their life and claiming their rights.” Look up antonyms for empower you get things like refuse, reject, disenfranchise. When I think of the opposite of being empowered, I think of victim. I think we either live lives of victimhood, or empowerment. I do not believe that there are gray areas with this topic. We are either empowered or we are victims.
