When we are faced with an incredible hardship or challenges, we find ourselves often times powerless and weak. To a point where some people lose control of their own lives. They let the situations define them and thus crumble as a result of that. We need to be clear in our minds that situations are just that, situations. It has no power over us. It is how we react and perceive the situations that is the true power. It has and will always be ours to wield or give. Which ever side we choose, it will be true. It will be valid. To us that is. And that is the only thing that matters. Other people can say a lot of things about the situations. Positive or negative. But until you decide to own your power and do what is best for you, you will always be at the mercy of situations.
