'Treat others the way you wish to be treated'? A fundamental rule to life?


Widely referred to as the 'Golden Rule' Should we all live by this rule? Could this make an individual a better person? I'd love to hear others opinions. Thank you!

    Ironclad guarantee? Good luck with that. That sounds very selfish. Like, "what's in it for me?" If you are not willing to risk being hurt, you have no chance of being happy. Only very lonely.

    I agree, not everyone would like to be treated the same; but if they wish to be treated with respect, they should treat others with respect!

    I agree, but denial will keep you from that. You have to recognize a problem as a problem, such as selfishness. People don't change unless there is a good reason to change. If you don't recognize and accept, you don't know your true status.

    I do the same when getting to know others. It's important to remember that we also have a duty to ourselves to protect ourselves from those who are abusive of our trust, kindness, etc.
