I Believe In the Golden Rule

Notifications: · Newest First
Treat people the way you want to be treated (or would want to be treated if you were in their shoes).
Do I always follow this? No. But do I believe in it as a fundamental ideal? Yes.

I treat people kindly and with respect, unless they prove that I shouldn’t

Treat people with respect until they prove unworthy of it.

I always treat ppl with respect and understanding but all I get is being mistreated like a trash in return

[@934648,Nanori] [@943705,Tython] [@473155,MiserableAtBest] And I like to think I am principled enough that I wouldn't want people to prop me up with endless respect if I am hurting them. I don't want to hurt people, and I don't want to be given respect for doing so, knowingly or not.

I always found that rule so silly. The way you want to be treated applies to you and no one else.

[@471800,Reject] Well, the best you can do is to treat people the way you would want to be treated until they tell you they don't like that. In that case, if I ever didn't like the way I was being treated, I would want someone to change they way they treat me when asked to. Thus, the rule still applies.

[@171136,33person] The best you can do is ask someone what they like. Treat people how they want to be treated. Respect to put it simply. Considering their feelings.

Yes, if everyone could do that, the world would be a better place to live.
