MY RIGHTS

I have the right to my anger.
I have the right to my pain.
I have the right not to tolerate.
The guilt trips and the blame.
I have the right to stand strong.
The right to find where I belong.

I have the right to my own life.
I have the right to my own space.
I have the right to peace of mind.
The right to the happiness in all that I find.

I have the right to my own beliefs.
I have the right to be unique.
I have the right to my own feelings.

I have the right to not feel guilt.
I have the right to remove myself from things that do not feel right.
I have the right to love,respect and value myself.

The right to hold on to all that is me and not let them take
my power from me.

You just don't know how much I needed to read that today. Especially the part of not feeling guilt and the power to "remove" oneself from situations that do not "feel" right.

I am currently planning on moving out -- my husband and I have been married for 13 years. He seems to be trying a few guilt tactics here and there. I really need to do it sooner, but my appt. won't be ready till the end of Oct. He says I am selfish, and that I am acting like it "is all about me". HMMM-- like when I begged him to go to therapy many times and he refused, among other things.

Anyway-- it was helpful to me, in this moment, in this hour. Thanks--Poohbear
