30 Life Lessons on Treating Others
1. Rebuild your self-esteem through friendship
Negative criticisms do add insult to our insecurities and tear down our sense of self-worth. A blast of destructive criticisms leaves us bruised and troubled and makes us feel unwanted. But true and loving friendship does rebuild one’s self-esteem.
2. Never lose faith in humanity
Have faith in the Creator and the humanity He created. Indeed, some people had chosen to become evil, contrary to what God wants. But humanity is “like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become (necessarily) dirty” (Mahatma Gandhi).
3. Remember that the other is a mystery
Never think that you already really know someone completely. Do not make assumptions. Don’t presuppose either that somebody totally knows you—your thoughts, opinions, and conditions.
4. Share your blessings
Finding a way to give back is satisfying. When a person becomes happy because of our selfless acts, we feel a sense of fulfillment. Sharing your blessings is never meaningless.
