The Golden Rule

We live in a world where in order for us to coexist as a species we must form different relationships with each other. In particular, intimate and non-intimate (friendships) relationships where there is a genuine expectation of respect.

In doing so, we shouldn’t treat others in ways we would not like to be treated,  Or We should treat others the way we would like to be treated.

Some might ask well, what does that really mean.
Let me break it down for you.

Communication

It starts with the way in which we communicate. Any individual of sound mind would agree that efficient communication is essential to the functioning of society. However, our biggest issue is our inability to listen. We don’t take the time to analyze the message and are quick to give a response.(The message is received but most times it’s not decoded properly). Hence the communication process breaks down. Our response should not only verbal but also in our actions.
Growth is everything.
Other factors that affect the communication process:
Tone of voice
Distractions
Dishonesty
Procrastination

Keeping Commitments

Whenever we neglect to fulfill duties that we agreed to willingly, our integrity is called into question. In the event that you cannot fulfill them then that information should be communicated in the appropriate manner.

Don’t be a flake!

Taking Responsibility

There’s a thick line between being strong willed and being ignorant. We tend to not be forthcoming in admitting when we are at fault in a situation. There are those who believe they can do no wrong but are the first to point out someone else’s faults.
Take a look in the mirror, perspective is everything.
