DanTheOutlaw, there is no such thing as anything being universally divine. I see this list as a sort of true baseline, and for someone to impose upon you and infringe upon these rights is to have actually created a social construct.

This is a wonderful post that really resonated with me. It basically lists everything deep down I know to be true. I think I'm going to come back here quite often to read this. Thanks a lot for this post.

These are the ones I need to work on the most. I'm too passive and give in to other people way too easily in an effort to please them, a lot of times at my own expense. I really needed to read this list. I think I'll print it out and hang it somewhere I can see it every day.

Once again, a bit long but worth a read. I truly believe every human being deserves these rights. Once I started implementing them into my daily life, friction was caused amongst my family members, because they were so used to me doing whatever they said and never standing up for myself.

It takes a while to truly believe these rights, I know I'm still struggling too.

But every day try to implement one of them. Soon you will believe that you are worthy of these rights as well.

What do you think?

Old post, but so, so good

On enhanced mobile I don't receive notifications besides pms. Apologies if I don't respond.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving
