It is simple: treat others the way you want to be treated. Right? Why make it more complicated than it actually is? Why is there a need to be nasty and hateful towards others? THERE ISN’T
I’ve had more than my fair share of bullying at work, school, on the internet, etc. The truth is: before you jump to judge a person, take a REALLY good look at who they are before jumping to any conclusions, EVEN if they are a bully.
Here are some things to consider: What kinds of things are going on in their personal daily lives (home, work, school, family, friends, etc)? Do you know this person personally? (Even if you do, there might be some things you might not know that is going on in their lives). Have you tried looking at things from their perspective; ‘spending a day in their shoes’? Have you given this person 3 official chances (its possible they might be having a bad day, or week, or maybe something is going on. Inspired by Rachel’s Challenge)
If you haven’t tried any of these things, I suggest you give it a go. Judging others like as if everyone was like you will have you end up no where. Everyone deserves a chance, despite anything they could have done. Think twice before making a judgment on someone else before knowing the facts.
Please, be compassionate, show love to others, and give others a chance,. If they can’t do these things in return, be the bigger person and show love and compassion anyway.
