I Treat Others As I Want To Be Treated

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 221 People

    Golden Rule

    Is there really any other way to be? Why would you even feel justified in treating someone as though they were beneath you? And if you are putting others on a pedestal and groveling at their feet, you are disrespecting yourself, and that isn't good, either.

    Simple

    Its simple, I treat others the way I want to be treated both as a sign of respect, and as an indication of what I will and wont tolerate; I believe in honesty, integrity, old-fashioned values; being polite, courteous and kind.  I don't suffer fools gladly and many have mistaken...

    Therefore ...

    I will never attack you although I will defend myself if attacked. I will never call you names or purposely try to hurt you in any way. I will always be honest and expect the same in return. I will show you nothing but respect but expect you will give me the same. It is easy to...

    Kind & With Respect

    That is not difficult to do...even if it does not come naturally for you like it does for me and others you can still learn by watching and following the examples of others.

    Manners

    I strive everyday to treat everyone I meet with respect and dignity. It is also called manners. Is it that hard to be decent to everyone you meet?

    Treat others the way you want to be treated. Don't do to others what you don't want to be done. You will never regret being kind, but you will regret being otherwise.
