11th June - Identity

My thoughts and feelings are my own

My thoughts and feelings belong to me. No one else can tell me what I really think, when I really feel. I don't have to check with others to see what they're feeling and thinking so that I'll know what I "should" feel or think.

As a child, I was often told that my feelings about this or that situation were wrong. I shouldn't be angry that my sister got a present and I didn't; I should be happy it was her birthday; I shouldn't hate Uncle Jim; I should love him because he's my uncle. My faith in the validity of my own mind was undermined early on.

Now I am an adult. I know that I have the right to own my thoughts and feelings. They may be good, bad, mean, spiteful, helpful, hurtful, wonderful, indifferent. Whatever they are, they belong to me.
