What Are Human Rights ?

In this age of entitlement, narcissism is spreading like an epidemic. People with narcissistic traits are the ones who feel overly entitled to treatment and rights that they actually don't have. However, still, there is a category of people who are not even aware of their basic human rights and are entertaining these overly entitled narcissists at the cost of their own peace of mind, health, and quality of life by unknowingly or knowingly scarifying their own basic human rights.

Don't you ever wonder why is there so much difference in the entitlement level of these two types of people? Well, the reason behind this is the significant difference in the childhood experience, belief system, mental health, parenting type, and cultural influence in these two types of people.

Adults raised in Dysfunctional Families are highly susceptible to this type of codependent behavior in which they keep other people warm by burning themselves all their life while parallelly self-doubting and feeling guilty for not being good enough.

A married woman with 3 kids aged 14,7 and 3 told me that at age 36 she read somewhere that we have the right to say "no" to someone who touches our body without our consent. That was the first time she learned about her right to "consent" and it turned into a life-changing moment of enlightenment for her. After that, she started reading and practicing more and more about self-love. I see so many people around me, especially women who are still not aware of their basic human rights and are living a miserable life full of pain, guilt, confusion, and frustration. I decided to write this blog for anyone suffering from a lack of boundaries especially adult children of Dysfunctional Families and partners of Narcissistic Spouses.
