Each person has a duty to develop one’s autonomy and assume responsibility for oneself.
This includes:

• taking responsibility for one’s own development (physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual)
• striving to live life in a way which respects oneself as a person (e.g. taking care of one’s health, standing up for one’s rights as a human being, making decisions that one feels deep inside are right for oneself as a person, etc.).

    Being able to do so presupposes striving to get to know oneself better in all the richness and complexity that characterizes each person with strengths and weaknesses, hopes, needs, and so on.
