42: How To Treat Others

I've seen a lot of advice online saying we should treat others exactly how they treat us.

"Give them a taste of their own medicine."

"Play mind games; don't show your true feelings, so they won't see your weakness."

"You always have to have the upper hand."

But there's a much better way to live.

Respond not to mirror how others treat you. Don't stoop to the level of someone else's immaturity.

Instead, respond in a way aligned to your values—let your generosity, kindness, tenderheartedness overflow into the lives of others—whether you think they deserve it or not.

Because you deserve the peace that comes with living a life that's true to what you believe in.
