My parents taught me how to work. I always had chores as a child, and have never been without a job.I worked both summers while I was in high school and learned the value of self reliance. Even when my children were young, I held a part-time job. My father taught me by his example. He worked very hard to provide for our family.
i must say that it is hard to choose one but, if I had to I would have to pick, "treat others in the way you would want them to treat you" and if they don't treat you like the way you want to be treated then don't be around them.
My mother taught us to be financial/budget geniuses...always on our toes, alert to scams and fraud.....protect our investments and interests. Squeeze the penny till Abe hollers "Uncle." My Dad was a wealth of life lessons.....especially about being kind and fair ...tolerant and helpful. My sis and I were blessed with wonderful, loving & wise parents.
The one most valuable lesson my parents taught me, and probably explains my tenacity, is that you can do anything you set your mind to. It gave me the determination I needed to never give up, go after my passions, and what I needed to get through an especially tough time in my life. I made sure to pass this one on to my own sons!
How many know the "Golden Rule"?What does it truly mean?Do you try to live your life by those words?How many grew up being told to "do onto others as you would do to yourself? Do we try to live by those...
So my hub family, I need some feedback on how do you live by this when dealing with someone who does not live by this motto? How do you treat someone kind and loving when in return they don't treat you the same.
