Oh this is so true. Or how you treat people you deem "subserviant" ie: waitstaff. I waited tables and it still amazes me that people think it's ok to abuse them. It's not...and if you do, then you SUCK!
Gosh, I get asked this alllllll the time. But I don't see it as the hard way if it's the right way. There is no other option if the right way is clear. Once you fall in love with what is good and true, nothing else appeals. And I don't just mean in the big, obvious decisions. Every decision you have to make is one more chance you get to prove to yourself who you really are.
