Reclaiming your Authentic Self by Letting Go of Addictive Ideologies & Negative Perspectives – Dr. Emily Bashah
Published on: 07/16/2022
This is a new series focusing on helping you reclaim your sense of "agency." Agency refers to the human capacity to influence one's functioning and the course of events by one's actions. You may not be able to control your destiny but you can control your fate. There are three forms of Agency one can influence others: Individual - You bring your influence on what you can control Proxy - You bring your influence on others who have knowledge or resources Collective - You pool knowledge, skills, and resources to work with others Our Theory: To own your agency, you must be able to use the neo-cortex portion of the brain where you can access rational thoughts, creativity, innovation, and optimism. Without this, you are doomed to serve a master other than yourself. You can lose your sense of agency through fear, despair, and depression. These can be affected by others who manipulate you and your negative bias to steal your agency. The goal of those groups is to make you afraid so you will not think, you will only react. In this series, we will be going over ways to get it back!
