You are the one who makes the decisions in your life. You get to think for yourself and decide what you want to do with your life. This is called self-sovereignty, and it’s a very important concept to remember. Too often, people forget that they are in control of their own lives. They let others make decisions for them, and they end up living somebody else’s life. This is not what you want! You deserve to live your own life, on your own terms. In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of self-sovereignty and how you can take back control of your life!
What is self-sovereignty?
Self-sovereignty is the idea that you are in control of your own life. You make the decisions and you think for yourself. Nobody else gets to tell you what to do or how to live your life. You are the sovereign of your own life! You can use your brain to create useful routines and make decisions that will help you achieve your goals.

Why is it important?
Self-sovereignty is important because it allows you to live your life the way you want to live it. You get to decide what you do with your life, and nobody else can tell you what to do. You are in control of your own destiny! For many of us, our overthinking and anxiety can get in the way of us living our best lives. We let others make decisions for us, we live in strict routines, and we don’t allow ourselves to experience new things. But when you remember that you are in control of your own life, you can start to make changes that will lead to a more fulfilling and happier life. Practice mindfulness and self-control, and allow yourself to step out of your comfort zone. You might be surprised at what you’re capable of!
But who am I?
This is a good question to ask yourself. Who are you, really? Someone is thinking and staring at a screen right now, reading these words. But who is this “thing” that is reading these words? This “thing” is you, of course! But who are you, really?
If you are a construct of words, then who can perceive reality in this moment? If thoughts and words are just constructs, then what is it that is aware of these thoughts and words? This awareness is you, the true you. The you that is beyond thoughts and words. The you that is in control of your life.
Your mental constructs and routines are not really who you are. They are just thoughts and words, maybe with a feeling attached to them. Don’t identify with them too strongly. Instead, identify with the awareness that is reading these words right now in the present moment. That is the true you. This true you is something that cant be described with words. It is prior to words, because it is the thing that perceives words.

It is pure consciousness, the essence of who you are. It could be a spirit, living in a human body for some time. But what that “I” really is and means for you, you have to figure out for yourself.
How can you take back control of your life?
There are many ways to take back control of your life. The most important thing is to remember that you are in control. You make the decisions and you think for yourself. Nobody else can do it for you!
One way to take back control is to become more mindful. Pay attention to your thoughts and emotions, and learn to control them.

Another way is to take back control of your body. Eat healthy food, exercise regularly, and get enough sleep. And finally, take back control of your time. Learn to use your time wisely, and don’t let others waste your time.
It is also important to note that the people, situations, and things that you think are controlling you sometimes won’t easily let go of their control. This is because they are afraid of losing their power over you. But if you are truly in control of your life, then you won’t let them control you anymore. You will be the one in charge of yourself and your energy!

These are just some of the ways you can take back control of your life. Remember, you are in control! You are the one who makes the decisions and thinks for yourself. You are the sovereign of your own life! Live it on your own terms!
