I Am My Own Authority

57. I Am My Own Authority

It took me years to get to the place where I could claim to be my own authority.

I was taught that others had more schooling, had more experience, had more of something or everything, so that I should believe what they say. Whether it was teachers, or parent, or preachers, or doctors—I definitely should not think that I was the authority.

But I am.

It’s true in the areas of religion, or government; it’s true of justice issues. I listen carefully. I read voraciously. I mull things over and think things through. And I come up with what rings true for me in my life at this time.

Sometimes I change my mind. Sometimes I tweak and adjust a belief, but ultimately I am my own authority.
