A Lesson in Humility and Self-Esteem


1. No one has the right to torture you. That means physically, emotionally or mentally.  2. You have the right to privacy. No one can interfere with your reputation, family, home or correspondence. No bullying.  3. You have the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law. Recognition means being acknowledged and treated with kindness.  4. Freedom of Expression: You have the right to free thought and to voice your opinions to others. Imagine feeling free to say what needs to be said, exactly in the way that others need to hear it — with respect, of course.  5. No one has the right to hold you in slavery. Slavery is an interesting word when applied to the complexities of modern life. Decisions to marry, have children, hold a job can sometimes feel like bondage that cannot be escaped.
