About Being Powerless

Here are related ways to think about this lesson:

  • Act in your own best interest, not at someone else’s expense.
  • There are no guarantees about how things will work out.
  • You can’t control or change another person.

Here’s a summary of this life lesson:

It’s important to be realistic about whether we have the ability, authority, or skills to effect change. We may feel powerless when we realize many things are out of our control. We can only impact the people with whom we interact and the circumstances in which we engage. Often, we can contribute and make a difference. Sometimes, we cannot. We need to be realistic about our limitations.

Writing helps you sort out your thoughts.

We've written a series of questions so you can dig deeper and get unstuck.

And we created two ways for you to do it, depending on how you work best:

IF you like to write your thoughts on paper, then print out our form, fill it out, and keep it in your journal. If you wish to share it with Esther, then scan it or take a picture of it with your phone and send it to her at her email address.

OR you may like to type instead of write, so we've created a form that you can fill out and have sent to you. Then, if you'd like to share it with Esther and get some personal counseling, simply reply to the email!

Online Form

Remember, the content you write in this form is confidential. It is emailed to you (to the email address you supplied) and nobody else.

If you wish to have Esther consult with you on your answers, then simply reply the email once you receive it. (Instructions are in the email along with your answers.) Esther may provide a simple reply or suggest further reading, a group session, or personal counseling, and it's completely up to you at that point how you would like to proceed.
