The golden rule does not apply to me….

Posted By on May 16, 2008

The Ethic of Reciprocity, more commonly known as The Golden Rule, states: “treat others as you would like to be treated.”.

I was talking with Liz recently, and she had some great insight.

It does not apply to me.

The reason it does not apply to me is that other people don't want to be treated the way I want to be treated.

I want people to be honest with me, I have little regard for platitudes, being right is more important than your feelings, and being wrong is not as bad as you think.

Apparently, this is not how other people want to be treated.
