When most Americans think of July, what naturally comes to their mind is July 4th, Width = 384px Height = 160pxthe commemorative day we celebrate our independence. It is not only an American national or political celebration but a deeply personal one as well. Many clients of mine at Wilmoth Inc., Dr. Tricia Wilmoth, Psychology Counseling, deal with problems of betrayal ( both by themselves and others), which has lead to a curtailing of their freedom and therefore their happiness.
If you look at your own life, what have you given up for acceptance? Have you not spoken up about injustice, have you been bullied or demeaned by others- especially those people who say they “love” you?

Are You a Victim? To Be or Not to Be
Be aware that often when someone tells you that they are looking out for your best interests- unless they are a paid professional that typically means that they are looking out for their own at your expense. If this has made you feel uncomfortable then you better keep on reading because you are probably being victimized either consciously or unconsciously, and if you value your freedom and happiness you need to take action.
Proactive Approach to Taking Control
So once you have identified that there is a problem, what do you do? You can begin by addressing your complaints to the person involved. This may or may not have the outcome that you desire. You can then decide if you want to continue participating in this relationship and if it is repairable. Finally, if neither of these outcomes work you should strongly consider leaving.
What is Your Freedom Worth to You?
When you think about it, this is like the steps the United States took with England before we established our independence. Like the battle for freedom for our country your own battle must be worth the freedom that you seek. If you are playing a game of concerned control rather than true freedom then everyone involved loses.
