We have the freedom to choose how to live life. When we make our own choices, we are demonstrating autonomy, which is important in maintaining social health. We are powerful! Unfortunately, we don’t always feel that way. Have you ever noticed that when you are around certain people, you feel like you have less control over your decisions? On the other hand, some people are great at giving others a sense of empowerment. What makes these people so different? Do you think you ever take away your own sense of autonomy? If so, how? Is this apparent when making decisions in your romantic relationships? Be sure to address all of the questions in the essay.
