I think the word “reliance” is too strong. It’s too simplistic to say that our thoughts and actions are our own. We have our own motivations, needs, and desires. We have our own sense of identity. We rely on others in order to feel safe, to feel loved, and to feel valuable. We rely on others for our safety, our well-being, and our worth.
My friend Dan is a professor of psychology at an Ivy League college. One day he just had a sudden realization that he had been relying on others to make all his decisions for him. “I was going to take that class, I was going to get that job, I was going to take that test,” he said, “It was just my own choices, and I couldn’t feel good about them.” It was a sobering realization that affected him for years.
It’s a common tendency to think of ourselves as self-reliant, we think we’re self-sufficient, that we have our own power, that we can take care of ourselves. But that’s simply a myth. You can’t control other people, you can’t control your own behaviors, you can’t control how your actions affect others.
The truth is you can’t even control what other people do to you, and that’s what makes you feel so damn powerless. Yes, you are not the only one who can’t control you, but you are the only one who has ever tried.
This attitude of self-reliance is the enemy of freedom, freedom is the ability to take back control of your own life, and to take back yours. To take back your life is to take back your power, and to take back your power is to take back your life.
It’s good to have the freedom to take back our power, but freedom is not only for people who can exercise the power of choice. Freedom is what allows all people to exercise their own choices, and it is freedom that allows us to have freedom in the first place. Freedom is also what allows everyone to take back control of their own lives.
Our own power is the result of our own choices and actions, and our freedom is the result of our choices and actions. It is this freedom that makes us all equal and allowed us to take back our power. When we exercise our power, we exercise our freedom.
If you are like me, you are often afraid that you’re going to mess up your life and cause a big mess. You’re going to take out all your friends and family and do something bad, and you’re probably going to die. I’ve seen enough of my friends kill themselves, and I’ve seen enough of my family do something stupid. But it’s like you’re not really sure if you’re going to make it through.
Thats why we have The Dictator in our game, right? If you dont exercise your power and its abuse, youre going to get fucked. Thats why you have Dictators in our game that are more like dictators. Theres a guy in the game who is like a dictator, and he uses his power to help people. He needs your help to win, and youre going to help him by giving him your power and your time.
