Don’t Spit In The Well.
You Might Want To Drink From It Sometime
By: Delicia Barnett
Many people don’t remember the Golden Rule: treat people how you want to be treated. This is also followed by “what goes around comes around.” Most of the time people look down on or look over a person because they feel that person is unimportant to them. You should never judge a book by its cover because; like my Great Aunt used to tell me “The toes you step on one day may be connected to the butt you will have to kiss tomorrow”.
One day you can be on top of the world and the next you can be at rock bottom. Everyone experiences high and low times. No matter where you are in your life you should always treat people with kindness, proper respect and dignity. As human beings we are not responsible for the things that happens to others or the things they do. In contrast, we should take responsibility for how we treat one another.
People should never be rude or discourteous to somebody because they are down or in a bad point in their life. You never know how your actions will affect that person or how they will react to your words. In a worst case scenario, how they will react to you when you are down and in need of a hand. It will be then, you will hope they will follow the Golden Rule and treat you how they want to be treated. But is that fair?
Nevertheless always remember to be kind and courteous to people no matter what they say or do. You never know when you might need that person in life. If you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all.
