I Treat Others As I Would Like to Be Treated

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,670 People

    I try to live my life by this very simple rule.

    Sometimes I get bogged down in emotions and day to day life and it it takes its toll on me (the stress of dealing with A-holes). I try to turn the other cheek. I try to do the right thing. Once in a while though, I twist this golden rule into something it is not after a long...

    Absolutely. A good lesson

    for life. Always cracks me up when people treat waiting staff badly. Can you imagine what they do to your food before you get it??

    One of my serious pet peeves.

    .. Treating people how you want to be treated. Now if you want to be treated like sh!t, that's a different story... And it shouldn't involved anybody else but yourself. Growing up, I was taught to treat others with the upmost respect, no matter how they treated you or...

    The Golden Rule

    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. These are the words I strive to model my life after. I do my best to treat anyone and everyone exactly as I'd want to be treated in that situation. I think that consideration, respect, compassion, kindness, and acceptance are not...

    For example, if I made a big mistake .

    .. acknowledged it, owned up to it and apologized ... I would hope people close to me would accept, forgive and move on. Do you treat others this way?

    Yes I will treat you in the manner you wish, and I can handle you treating me in the same manner, but also I can except to be treated in a less manner. You won't bother me in doing that, what I do not accept is you treating another in a manner they do not accept. So I am...

    The one thing that bothers me about this

    website is the amount of people that complain about the simplest things. I understand being upset once in a while about situations but don't allow yourself to always be the victim. Take intiative. Be courageous and independent. 😞

    I like to be nice to people,

    yet I'm quite down to earth and truthful. I have & will never say something behind someone's back unless I can say it to there face and I love to complement. On the plus side I think that what goes around comes around so be pleasant and receive pleasant things.
