Dignity means doing the right thing. Irony is, we all have different versions of our rights. And, we all are right according to our own selves.
Question then arises, which right to choose amidst so many rights? Simple. Go by your inner voice, or your emotional GPS, as Oprah calls it.
Amidst all the many options available to you, pause for a moment and reflect: how would I feel in all the available options. You will get your answer every single time. Most of those times, answer would lie in protecting your peace and letting go of limits which ego has imposed on us.
The real deal is this: you will die. I will die. Why not go with the option of taking your own care, and giving back the same to the world?
