You Have No Rights To Anything

I have a problem with what people say are rights. When we are born, we have no right to life.

Our life depends upon the love of those who bring us into this world. We thrive when we are nurtured and cared for. That is a result of the benevolence of those who care for us or about us. We never have a right to anything that we don’t strive to earn for ourselves. No human owes us anything.

Neither can we demand anything for which we have not made an effort to secure for ourselves. Life owes us nothing and we cannot demand from life what we have not driven ourselves to earn.

So, let’s stop saying that you have a right to this or that. Earn what you get or get blessed with the generousity of others who want to bring delight to your life. You have no right to anything!
