Personal Bill of Rights

(Thanks SaS forum)
It's maybe cheesy but it's something assertion related. I think.

Every man, woman, and child has the following rights by virtue of the fact that they exist.
These are reasonable and ordinary expectations, which create appropriate boundaries.


  • I have the right to make my own choices.

  • I have the right to follow my own values and standards,
    as long as I am not abusive towards others.

  • I have a right to dignity and respect.

  • I have a right to all of my feelings.

  • I have a right to express myself as long as
    I am not abusive toward others.

  • I have a right to determine and honor my own priorities.

  • I have a right to recognize and accept my own value system as appropriate.

  • I have a right to have my needs and wants respected by others.

  • I have the right to say no when I feel I am not ready, unsafe,
    or that it violates my values (this goes for kids too...they have
    the right to say "no" to their parents)

  • I have the right to make mistakes and not have to be perfect.

  • I have the right not to be responsible for others behavior,
    actions, feelings or problems.

  • I have a right to be uniquely me, without feeling I'm not good enough.

  • I have the right to make decisions based on my
    feelings and judgment for any reason.

  • I have the right to change my mind at any time.

  • I have the right to my personal space and time needs.

  • I have the right to be flexible and be comfortable with doing so.

  • I have the right to be in a safe, non-abusive environment.

  • I have the right to forgive others and forgive myself.

  • I have the right to give and receive unconditional love.

  • I have the right to enjoy being sexual and celebrate my sexuality.

  • I have the right to my own spiritual beliefs and to celebrate them.

  • I have the right to grieve when I don't get what I need.

  • I have the right to grieve when I get something I didn't need or want.

  • I have the right to joyfully receive without feeling guilty.

  • I have a right to healthy relationships of my choice.

  • I have the right to be angry with someone I love.

  • I can take care of myself, no matter what.

  • I have the right to be, and can be, healthier than those around me.

  • I have the right to trust others who earn my trust.

  • I have the right to terminate conversations for any reason.

  • It is OK to be relaxed, playful and frivolous.

  • I have a right to expect honesty from others.

  • I have the right to change and grow.

  • I have the right to follow my own path.

  • I have the right to be happy.
