We all know the Golden Rule. Well, at least we all should - if you don't - look it up dammit. That's common knowledge mayn! 🐘 Anyways, there is someone that gets left out of the equation every now and then. Who? Man, I treat all these people decently - or at least I try. Who then could possible have been left out?!
I'll tell you who numbnuts! YOU. You forgot you dammit. How do you treat yourself? Do you diss yourself? Make less of yourself? Doubt yourself and second guess yourself? Do you tell yourself you are not good enough, pretty enough? Do you think of things you wish to do and then one second later tell yourself that you are not good enough to accomplish whatever it is you wish for? "Man, I would love to get that job!... No, I'll never make it. I'm just not good enough. I should play it safe and stay in the comfort zone... Yeah, I guess I will stay down here..."
WTF?! If a friend talked like that to you, you would reply with a slap to the face!
So on that point, here is the rule with a twist:
"Treat yourself as you would want others to treat you."
Respect thyself mayn!
