Dear God,

Why is it so easy for me to give my power to people I see as being better then me? Even friends I love. That somehow they know more about me and about what I need and want and it is their place to tell me. I am troubled by a relationship with a friend who loved and appreciated me and I them when we met and for a long time after. Then I struggled with a bout of depression and my friend began to be less loving and more judging and critical. Now all I want to know is why they don't love and appreciate me nor allow me to show them the same. I feel as I have turned all my power over to them and I sit and wait to see what they will do next. I feel shut out and at the same time waiting on baited breath for absolution or an explanation for what I did wrong so I can fix it. God, please show me how to regain my power in a loving and respectable way for me and for them. Gratefully, Santa Fe

Answer from God through Carley:

"Your power is your free will.  It is yours to use or to give away, but I wonder if you would take a close look at those you know that are truly happy.  What do you think makes them happy?  Usually the happiest people aren't the ones with the most money or things, but instead those who know what brings them true joy and they dedicate time regularly to those things.  They also strive to bring balance to their lives. They create their lives in such a way that what they believe in is displayed outwardly to others; they live their lives being true to what is important to them.  Also I think a similar trait in truly happy people is that they treasure their free will, exercise it regularly and instead of surrounding themselves with many acquaintances, they instead have one or two really close friends and they also work hard at keeping those relationships strong and healthy.  You are the only one who has the power to make you happy. Happiness cannot be given to you. Treating yourself with love and respect might be your first best step to take."
