Writing my Rights

To set down in writing what my ‘rights’ are. Right a moral, ethical, or legal principle considered as an underlying cause of truth, justice, morality and or ethics.
We each have our own right, our own moral compass, what makes us tick, what brings us joy and what pushes us to do more. I have a difficult time emotionally when others feel the need to tell me what ‘’right’’ looks like and subsequently how I am not ‘’on the right path’’. My path is my own and I will navigate it how I see fit and believe that it is part of the journey having the right to do what we want and feel is best.

Whether it be religion, spirituality, absence of religion, nature, family or friends our own choices should not be spoken ill of. I believe I am a human being first and foremost, a woman who is also a mother, a nurse, a person who loves life, laughter and learning. My wish is that each journey we go on can be respected and not attacked, I suppose it’s a bit of a rose coloured wish however I can exemplify that in my own interactions with others and hope that it is done in return to me.

I really do not think mass amounts of people can or should have the exact same opinion on every subject and our own opinions and stands are molded and shaped throughout our lives as we go through experiences so to judge and cast negativity on another’s journey is simply in my opinion so unwarranted and can have emotionally trying effects on those who are being cast against. Life is too short to think we have all the answers and that our right is the only right. Imagine if there was only one form of painting that was right? Think of all the amazing pieces of art that would be wrong? Is it bad to think the Venus of Willendorf is just as valuable in Art History as a piece by Georgia O’Keefe? Then why as humans do we feel the need to let other people know how wrong they are….
