    Treat Others as Though You Would Like To Be Not Realistic However .......

    As much as this sounds promising it is probably too idealistic.  It can only exist in an ideal state. What can be achieved is compassion no matter how trivial what seems small to us is significant to the individual. The simple smile, a cheerful greeting etc. every...

    The Golden Rule Is My Rule Too

    "Do not do unto others what you don't want others do unto you." Very short but meaningful, for so many years I always believed in this. I've met so many friends and yet lost many of them because of the golden rule. I still keep on believing in it and maybe till the end, will...

    Golden Rule

    Its called a rule for a reason. It's a rule of life more than a rule that's been placed upon us. It's more 'karma' nowadays, and I fully believe the way you treat others will be the way you're treated, if not by the people you're treating badly (or well) but by someone else down...

    I shouldn't. I'll try harder not to. ...said no narcissist ever. :) Anyway, I do believe in TGR. Actually, I prefer Hillel's Silver Rule: "That which you do not wish to be done to you, you should not do unto others."

    The Only Rule to Live By

    I truly believe the Golden Rule is the only rule to live by.  If everybody in the world treated everyone else the way they would want to be treated, the world would be a paradise.  It is as simple as that.

    Why do we need to feel superior?

    The golden rule is a great rule and I'm sure most if not all of us have heard it in one form or another. I think the best version is "Treat others the way they wish to be treated". I feel this is the best version because not everyone wants to be treated the same way I do nor the...
