My philosophy -since the selfishness people are capable of can be overwhelming stick to this and you'll never be at their level...
Yes, some people really do suck. Why invite them into YOUR precious life? God gives us a finite number of days above ground. Why pollute a single second/minute/hour/day/year with a sucky person? If they were the tray that raw chicken comes in, how long could you stand to leave it in your kitchen trash? Time to kick those stinky peeps to the curb trash can for pick up, baby!
..And Jesus said, "Love God with all your heart, mind and soul, and love others as yourself." ...measure all your decisions and beliefs against that. Make sure that you are offering others the same rights, courtesies, and respect that you expect for yourself. If you do that, you can't go wrong. ~ Glennon Melton
So true! A lady told me the other day she loved my haircut. It made my day. And I think the reverse of this quote is true. I always try to not make someone's day worse even if I can't summon up the energy to make it (hopefully) better.
