Let me introduce myself. My name is Caitlin D’Aprano and I am the CEO & Founder of Willpowered Woman. I am a lifetime survivor of Abuse. When I left my husband due to his violence, I decided to commit my life to empowering young women.
The thing with toxic people is that you can’t control what they do, you can only control how you respond to it.
I settled with my ex-husband in September 2015. We still haven’t signed the divorce papers. Well – that’s not exactly true – I signed them 10 weeks ago and apparently enroute to his address, they didn’t get delivered.
Yeah right – I don’t believe it for one second. This is probably just another ploy to control me. I had a good cry last night, but today I picked myself up and instead of worrying about it, I found a few fun events to go to this weekend! Nothing like being proactive to pull yourself out of a situation you don’t want to be in.
I have discovered through this very difficult situation of mine, that this is what empowerment is all about. Turning a shit situation in to an opportunity.
So, until next time – remember – the power is always yours, you have the power to make choices that make you feel empowered.
