Empowerment Need

The Theory of Balanceology denotes empowerment as the third major basal Self-Need;  along with the other basal Self-Needs of Safety/Security, Worth, and Enjoyment.  There is a kind of pain in powerlessness; a kind of helplessness. Empowerment and power overlap because in order to be empowered it requires some form or kind of power. Power pertains to human power orientation, thrust, or force. As I detail the Empowerment Need over the next several posts, I will address when empowerment and power interact, and when power by itself becomes an issue of control.  And, I will suggest that it is a good idea for each of us to discover what it means to have a healthy balance between power and empowerment.
