Bill of Rights for Adult Children
These Bill of Rights which i will share comes from a book called Recovering from Emotionally Immature Parents by Lindsay C. Gibson. Practical Tools to Establish to create Boundaries and Reclaim your Emotional Autonomy. This applies to all relationships.
The Right to Set Limits:
I have the right to set limits on your hurtful or exploitative behaviour
I have the right to break of any interaction in which i feel pressured or coerced.
I have the right to stop anything long before I feel exhausted.
I have the right to call a halt to any interaction, i don't find enjoyable.
I have the right to say no without a good reason.
this is a long time practice that requries deep compassion and loving kindness.
