I will allow mistakes and choose acceptance over perfection.

 

I will follow my own values and beliefs.

 

I will say “no” to anything that I am not ready for, that is unsafe, or conflicts with my needs.

 

I will determine my own priorities.

 

I am not responsible for the actions, feelings, or behavior of others.

 

I will make decisions based on my feelings and needs.

 

I choose friends who are accepting of me.

 

I choose to live in a safe and nurturing environment.

 

I allow change and support my growth and allow others to do the same.

 

I have the right to be myself and accept my individuality.


I have to right not to explain, give excuses or reasons for my behavior while stating my needs clearly in the moment.


I will choose to allow other people to have judgments and not be affected by them.


I desire and accept honesty from others.

 

I will create an environment that generates peace and harmony.

Feeling fulfilled and joyful will be a direct result of knowing and expressing my needs
