There is something overwhelmingly dramatic surging up inside myself when I read this. I don't know why and I'm not sure what that 'something' is, but its just so powerful.

Thanks, R91

I have read this over a few times before, but it is time I print this baby out and stick it in my backpack so I can see it each day and be reminded that I have the right to feel good about myself and love everything about myself, etc.

Again, thank you for sharing this with everyone here You are the shiznit <3

I have the right to look ugly if I want to. And I exercised that right today! I went for a run without any makeup on (I've got pretty bad acne). I ran past a cute guy and his pretty girlfriend who were my age and just smiled and went on. It felt nice to not care.

This bill of rigts is awesone. Thanks R91. I agree with you every day is a struggle to exert our rights with family, friends, co-workers. I believe when our parents teach us and respect these rights it makes it easier to exert our rights outside the family. I believe it all starts with our family relationsips. A parent has to give respect to receive respect. Let's all remember to continually exert our rights and ask and give the respect deserved especially to our loved ones.

Great post, part of me struggles to believe it though who am i to deserve these rights, what about others who are starving and exploited in third world countries do they deserve the same happiness?
If yes then why is life such that it probably can't b achieved for them, oh well better them than not me right?
I totally agree with this list but for some people it is always denied.

I absolutely love this post/thread. It hammers back on the theory that we all have complete control over how we respond to any situation that comes our way.

You can't always control what happens to you. However, your reaction lives completely in your own head and you really CAN choose to be happy and confident at any time.

Thank you for this encouraging statement of self-rights!

“A man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that's unlocked and opens inwards; as long as it does not occur to him to pull rather than push.” ― Ludwig Wittgenstein (on how to treat social anxiety)

Awesome!! I will use these. They almost make me nervous just to think about because I have been living in fear and not in control of these for so long.

Not really. At the end of the day, a parent can force a minor to do whatever they want.

Well done for that post. I should know and feel my own bill of rights, but I'm much older. I've been the adult me for 30 years. You are just finding yourself. I can change but it's a much greater wrench, you need to assert yourself positively. I've struggled with this for years, high functioning autistic with social anxiety / thickness
