This hit me quite hard: "Happiness comes from inside.
It is not dependent on external things,or on other people.
You become vulnerable and easily hurt when your feelings
of security and happiness depend on the behavior and actions
of other people. Never give your power away to other people,
wether in life,or in your head." (I am,of course,talking in
present tense).

I've read that. It's good to see it right now as I've been letting others get to me some and realize I need to reconnect with my inner truth more again. Thanks.

A quote I like is "Loving yourself is an inside job." :)
“Courage is an inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles." Rev Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hi Fleur,
You can empower self by getting and studying how to be assertive,without losing temper.
Do beg,borrow,or steal to get this book,it is out of print,but you should get it in 'Alibris'.
The book is called,"When I say no,I feel Guilty",by Manuel Smith. If you can't get it,just put the
word assertiveness in any retailer selling books,and see what's there.
I waited all my life to find
out about assertiveness,and was/is joy to have,and stop being tramped on;for years and years,
I would mutter to myself "Their must be another way",this is it,this is it!
Courage To You,
jimscarlet :)
