The golden rule is “Treat others the way you want to be treated”. It’s literally the perfect “rule”, because in theory; if you treat people the way you want to be treated, then you’ll treat people with respect, love, and kindness. If everyone is treating each other well, we would live in a perfect world. It should be simple, right? Well, as you can see, our world isn’t perfect. People are still treating each other horribly, but why? Why can’t the one’s hurting others follow the golden rule?
The golden rule says, treat others the way YOU WANT TO BE TREATED. Well, what if someone doesn’t want to be treated with respect, love, and kindness? What if they don’t even realize that subconsciously they don’t want to be treated with respect, love, and kindness? If you don’t treat yourself with respect, love, and kindness; you won’t know how to treat others the same way.
The key to following the golden rule is to love who you are. This isn’t a selfish and conceited type of love. No, it’s the type of love where you genuinely love who you are and who you were created to be. When you begin to honestly appreciate the person you are; you will in turn begin to treat people the way they want to be treated.
So, how do you start loving yourself? It’s simple - learn who you are. Essentially, find your purpose in life. When you are living your purpose, you are loving yourself, because you know who you are. When you are living your purpose, you are operating as God intended. You are following God’s path for your life, and God’s path will always lead you to a life of love, happiness, peace, and freedom!
When you understand who you are, it will lead to you honestly loving yourself. Then you can truly follow the golden rule. You’ll know how to treat others, because you started by treating yourself that way. In the world today, we need everyone to follow this rule. You can do your part by finding your life purpose, and loving who God created you to be!
