It's All in the Emotions (Sunday Scribblings)

I am not powerful. In fact, I feel exceedingly powerless most of the time.

I do not exert great power or force.
I am not physically strong beyond the ordinary.
I do not feel like I have the uncanny ability to move people with the power of my voice, speech, written word, or logic.
And I certainly don’t feel like I have great authority or influence.

However, I have powerful, strong emotions.

When I am hurt, I hurt deeply.
When I am in love, I love passionately.
When I am angry, I am completely angry.
When I am sad, I am inconsolable.
When I am afraid, I am profoundly afraid.
When I am content, I am genuinely satisfied.
This week's topic, Powerful, was very difficult for me. I'm not entirely sure why, but it took me over a day of thinking to decide what to write, and when I did, the thoughts did not pour from me as they often do. There must be something about this word that strikes dischord in my mind, but I can't verbalize what it is. Thanks for reading.

I've often thought 'power' has a negative connotation because it's used in so many corrupt ways. Easier to step back from it than to claim it. Just my thoughts! I enjoyed, for sure, reading yours!

What a passionate woman you are! This was a beautiful take on the prompt! What better way to be, you feel deeply, that's wonderful! Just think of the sad souls that rarely feel the passion that you do! What an excellent inspirational post! Thank you for sharing this intimate side of yourself! You are mistaken, you are very powerful woman! I believe passion can change the world!

Also thank for the lovely words on my blog!!

Peace and love to you

I thought this was very good Forgetfulone. I struggled with the same problem in writing for this topic. Powerful to me has many negative connotations, because too often in my life I was in the position of being the powerless one. Power is too often used abusively. I think you've done a wonderful job of bringing out another aspect of power - powerful emotions - something that makes a woman strong and beautiful!! I could easily relate to this post!

Oh yes, I understand! I am the same way. A woman of very deep and powerful emotions.
