saw this and thought it belonged here .

*I am allowed to be vocal about my pain if it helps me heal

*I am allowed to be sad in places other than my own head

*I am allowed to express my anger/sadness/hurt in ways that do not hurt other people

*I am allowed to speak my truth even when it makes others uncomfortable

*I am allowed to take care of myself, even if it makes people who hurt me uncomfortable

*I am allowed to create my own rules for self-care, as long as it doesn't hurt others who have my best interest at heart.

From time to time, I do consider that I might be mad. Like any self-respecting lunatic, however, I am always quick to dismiss any doubts about my sanity. DK

And I would add one:

- I am allowed to not be okay with being treated poorly.
