“TREAT OTHERS THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE TREATED”
It’s the golden rule saying we’ve all heard growing up. This saying goes far beyond being just available or being helpful to those in need. Instead of just treating others the way you would want to be treated, think about others the way you would want to be thought of. Feel about others the way you would want others to feel about you. Speak to others the way you would want to be spoken to or spoken of. Feel about others how you would have them feel about you. Holding onto harsh feelings will only harm you and make you hardened to feeling love and compassion. Whether or not you bear responsibility for another’s harsh feelings toward you, knowing these feelings remain is unpleasant. Especially if you feel they are unjust. Think of others the way you would like to be thought of. Refrain from thinking, or speaking pityingly of someone. If you would like to help someone you think is less fortunate, do it from love, not pity. Focus less on punishing those who cross you or others and choose to guide them into a better frame of mind. Teach them not only the error of their ways but, the error in their thinking. Always be open to seeing the other side as well, you may learn something. Speak to and of others how you would like to be spoken to, and about. Everyone is multifaceted and cannot be fit into the box we would like to crop them into. Do not speak disparagingly about someone just because you disapprove of that person.
