I think this Personal Bill of Rights leads directly to a Life Of Bliss. I think each and every one is important–but my favourites are 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14,  24 and 25. Which ones give you the most bliss?
btw: I hardly ever reblog — this is more than worthy

A Gripping Life


I’m not sure who came up with this list, but I’ve used it time and again to help clients/patients stand on firmer emotional ground. It’s a good reminder, especially for those of us who struggle with a fragile sense of self. Go ahead and tape it to your refrigerator. It’s great for the whole family and can encourage important discussion.

1. I have the right to ask for what I need.

2. I have the right to say no to requests or demands that I cannot meet.

3. I have the right to express all of my feelings – positive and negative.

4. I have a right to change my mind.

5. I have a right to make mistakes and not be perfect.

6. I have a right to follow my own values and beliefs.

7. I have the right to say NO to anything if I feel I’m not…

  1. I agree, Lou Ann about Lisa’s post. This is a FP post if I ever saw one! Love it. I listed 12 and 25 as my favorites as well but these should be read regularly!

    • It is perfect isn’t it — we have these rights and they can make us more powerful!

  2. More reasons why I love the two of you… 🙂

    Not everybody looks at that list and sees the gravity of embracing those simple rights. You’re so insightful to believe that embracing those rights creates authentic power. It does indeed. xoxox!!

    • Thank you for providing them — I don’t think a lot of people recognize that they have these rights — they are very freeing

      • No, they don’t recognize that they have these rights. They do a cursory glance, an it all sounds good, but they don’t let it really sink in. I knew you’d ‘get it.’ 🙂

      • I hope between the two of us we can do some damage to helplessness

      • Amen to that.

  3. My two biggies I chose were….the right to not be perfect and the right to expect honesty….there were so many good ones…Diane

  4. I don’t think I can pick a favorite one, they are all important. Thanks for sharing it, and yes it would be the path to bliss in my opinion.

  5. Thank you for sharing this. We have a right to be ourselves!

    • most assuredly – I saw it and had to have it on my blog too

      • And may we never forget it..

      • I emailed a copy to my son at college–with a bit of an explanation–hope he “gets it”

      • I hope so, too. It’s hard to ascertain if one of our offspring will “get it”!

  6. Perfect timing for me. 🙂 thank you.
