How Do You Treat People?

How do you treat a person who cannot help you? How do you treat people who have no power? How do you treat yourself?

“Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.”

Eppie Lederer

People are not interested in what you have, how intelligent you are, how beautiful you are, or how successful you are; they are interested in how you treat people. People want to be treated with respect and dignity. They don’t want you to humiliate them. They want you to see them as human being. If you want people to respect you, love you, want you, you must treat them with respect. Respect is reciprocal. If you don’t treat people with respect, they will not treat you with respect.

When you meet people, don’t disrespect them. Give them love. Give them happiness. Make them believe in themselves. The more love you give to people, the more love you will receive. You get back what you sent into the world. If you send disrespect, you will receive disrespect. If you send respect, you will receive respect. Be mindful how you treat people. If you want to be treated with respect, treat people with respect.

You Must Be Yourself

“I must be myself. I cannot break myself any longer for you, or you. If you can love me for what I am, we shall be the happier. If you cannot, I will still seek to deserve that you should. I will not hide my tastes or aversions.”- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Who are you? In order to know where you are, what you are doing, and where you are going, you must know yourself. Don’t try to be who you are not. Just be your true self. Don’t try to please people, because you can’t please everyone. The more you try to please people, the more you move away from what is important to you- your life. Don’t let that happen to you!

“If you can love me for what I am, we shall be happier.”-

Ralph Waldo Emerson
