I just woke up around 11:08 AM. I slept a lot and dreamt a few dreams that right now I vaguely remember. And this below are the first thoughts that came through me upon awakening:
I have my own agenda and I don’t think that’s evil.
I have my own interests and I don’t think that’s bad.
I hold my own space and that is not bad.
I am here too.
I deserve too.
I have rights too.
My needs matter too.
My wants matter too.
And that is not a selfish thing, that is a natural right of being.
It is not selfish to take care of myself.
It is not selfish to say “Hey, I have needs and I want to take care of them” and not by anyone’s expense but through the natural order of things.
I belong too.
I matter too.
My thoughts, my feelings, my opinions matter too. And they don’t have to matter to you, like yours don’t need to matter to me. I’ll respect yours and I ask that you respect mine, and that is all.
