Treat People How YOU Want To Be Treated
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I am sure since you were little you were told by your parents, teachers or any other authority figure to be nice to others and they will be nice to you. Well these are very true words. We tend to forget them or maybe take them to the extreme when we grow up. If you treat people like crap (not my word choice) they will treat you like crap. Well there should not be much more to this article then that right?

Well I have spent my life trying to live by those words. I realize I have not always treated everyone in my life how I wanted to be treated but sometimes it was out of spite for how they treated me or someone I love. The world is filled with crappy, miserable people and if you are not careful you can fall in that trap as well. Sometimes it seems easier to be miserable and keep everyone miserable around you.

Well I have had a revelation in the past few days myself and realized no one person makes you miserable. I make myself that way by allowing what is said and done to me affect me. Well I don’t really care anymore what anyone says to me about me or does to me. I am going to keep being me. I am going to continue to be the person I feel is very special and that deserves what ever she can get.

You don’t always get what you dish out in return, especially if it is a good deed. This kind of goes along with pleasing people, saying things just to hurt someone, not associating with someone because they are not what you consider normal. You should always think before you act, because what goes around comes around and if you are not careful you may get more then you bargained for.

Whether you get anything out of being nice to someone whether they are nice to you or not you should feel good inside knowing you were the bigger person, you did not stoop to their level. You stayed true to yourself, and did what you were told to do as a young child. They told you to be nice to others and they would be nice to you because they believed in you. They believed that you will do the right thing.

Treat people with respect and dignity because you will get it in return. They can only teach you but you can teach everyone you encounter in your life. Well now how do you want to be treated?
