We need to come to our understanding in Dissociation Anonymous that our lives are our own right now. We are autonomous an adult with the right to make choices and decisions about our own life. But this belief has been a long time in coming. As a child we had few, if any, choices, and dissociation stripped us of our free will. Recovery has involved recovering the child within, and gaining our freedom to act as we truly want to: a victim no longer, but a survivor with an integrated self-agency the child within.

In this process of recovery, therefore, it was paramount that we were not disempowered by the very people that are meant to be helping us. Are we given choice, or are our choices made for us? Are we disempowered by a ‘services’ that are meant to empower us, someone with all the knowledge and all the power, who doles out a ‘treatment’ to us that we don’t even understand? Or are we empowered by a humble human being, coming alongside us, not one over us but with us, on a level playing field of truth, trust and consent?

We are extremely fortunate in the people who have helped us. They have empowered us to discover our own agency, our own ability to act, to find our own identity and forge our own destiny. They have insisted that we sit in the driver’s seat: they have held the map, and only occasionally pulled the emergency brake. Had we been disempowered by ‘services’, we might not have learned that we are in charge of our own recovery, and that our lives are our own to choose now.
