How have i explained to you what to 'think' or 'feel' ?
Humans are terrified of not being in control, of being powerless. Really though there is no one in control of anything. It is just happening.
You 'think' you are separate to life and that you have to hang onto it or do it.
Even if a person denies that they have any part of them that desires escaping power/responsibility (I won't believe you, but just for the sake of argument) then that would mean that in having that position of power, your desire and hunger is fulfilled. You don't need to have a bigger part of the cake- you got your reward already.

But most of all, just as the person in powerless roles will feel that pressure of the Will to Power inside them being oppressed,
So will the person in the power role feel the pressure of the Will to Powerless inside them being repressed.
They each feel a part of them not being fulfilled and wanting so. The resentment is possible on both sides, and is often the source of just as many polluted systems and values on the side of the master mentality!
The only solution is for people to take control of their lives, and to be lazy and take action when they want, with the exception of handing their power over to another which will then be slavery.
So do whatever you want - powerful or powerless
Allow others to do the same (free-will)
and do not give your power away (otherwise you will not be able to make your own decisions).
