The Golden Rule

“Am I treating myself the way I wish others would treat me?” ~Sue Ellen Wolcott *


Sue Ann goes on to write, “The Golden Rule is the best. The two versions, the positive and the negative, tell us we should either do to others as we would have done to ourselves, or that we should not do to others that which we would find hateful to ourselves. But do we treat ourselves well, or do we treat ourselves badly? If I am going to behave lovingly, and not hatefully, to others, then it seems to me I must start at home. Treating myself badly is not good practice for treating others well.”
