Power is contextual

Viktor Frankl made me feel immensely powerful – in the small gap between stimulus and response. I have a choice here – to do or not do something. It makes life worthwhile.

The person opposite me, too, wields the same power. And it may not be aligned to my life path or strategy, or designed to boost or ego.

Power is then limited, not absolute – and contextual.

I exercise choice
to act, but have no control
on others’ response
Pause, evaluate, respond
face consequences boldly
