Respect others rights as you want yours to be respected. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT to put yourself first some times, to ask for help or emotional support, to protest unfair treatment or criticism, to your own opinions and convictions, to make mistakes until you get it right, to let someone solve her/his own problems, to say “thank you, no” “excuse me, no”, to disregard the advice of others and follow your own, to be by yourself even when others want your company, to your own feelings whether they make sense to others or not, to change your mind or choose a different course of action, to negotiate for changes when the arrangements don’t work for you.
IT’S NEVER YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to be 100% perfect, to follow the crowd, to love destructive people, to please unpleasant people, to apologize for being yourself, to drain your strength for others, to feel guilty about what you desire, to put up with unpleasant situations, to sacrifice your integrity for anyone, to remain in an abusive relationship, to do more than you have time to do, to do something you really cannot do, to conform to unreasonable demands, to give what you really don’t want to give, to bear the burden of another [persons] misbehavior, to give up who you are for anybody or anything. (Universal Zulu Nation, 20th Century A.D.).
