But, like, without the cool batmobile, utility belt, cape, latex nipple suit, crime fighting skills… Just the part where I can climb a house into an upstairs window to retrieve the keys I left in the kitchen as I locked the door behind me.
“Don’t throw people away. Don’t take people for granted. Be kind, be considerate, listen, have empathy. Don’t assume you know who they are and what’s up with them, even if they’ve been your partner forever and you’re allowed to take their trust and intimacy for granted. Don’t leave that person behind without a fight.
The golden rule is written totally and completely backward. Don’t do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Do unto others as they would wish it done.
Treat people they way they want to be treated. And bank on the first part of that is respect and consideration. Friend or foe, stranger or beloved. Start with respect and consideration, and move on from there.
If you don’t, you’re an asshole.
