DO
 some inventory writing using these 2 forms

 

HAVING RIGHTS
When we thoroughly accept that we have ‘inalienable right’, we can work on listing & fulfilling our needs – not perfectly – or easily, but as much as reasonably possible.
SELF-CARE allows us to:
1. eliminate deprivation.  ACoAs either harmfully over-indulge or live in self-denial starvation in all PMES ways. Knowing we have value makes is easier to find appropriate, balanced nourishment in every area of life
2. feel good about ourselves / be empowered / enjoy our life — all natural results & rewards for being in charge of our needs

3. have boundaries. Once we know what we need or don’t need, want or don’t want – we can tell other people what is or isn’t acceptable, in case they can or want to be helpful
It’s not their job to honor our boundaries – only we can do that – but they need to know, so they can be respectful of them
4. prevent abuse.  We won’t accept or tolerate any form of mistreatment, being clear about our rights, especially the right to be safe

5. not be manipulated.  When we know what’s legitimate, normal & healthy, we can tell when someone is trying to control us, & not fall for it
6. minimize anger & resentment.  The more we take care of ourselves, the less we co-dependently expect others to provide what’s not reasonable, which minimizes our “disappointment quotient”
