One of my best friends called me Friday saying she had gone to the local bank and the teller had treated her with no respect or sentimentality.
My best friend Jacque never cries, she says its because she grew up in a military family, and crying was a sign of weakness. I think that's just her excuse to me since I usually cry as a cooping mechanism. I think Jacque doesn't cry because she's strong... definitely stronger than me. But she started crying telling me her story of what had just happened to her, and I knew that someone had to have treated Jacque so badly to bring out that kind of emotion.
She asked me, "was it me, did I do something to her to make her treat me ugly, all I did was compliment her outfit and compliment her." I told her, absolutely not, she must have some deep rooted anger and you don't know what is going on in her life that she's taking it out on anyone she comes in contact with.
People don't realize it, how someone treats you, it can effect your whole day for the better or worse. We all need to treat everyone we encounter how we would like to be treated, even if our lives are collapsing before us. Come on you guys, we learned treat others with respect and kindness when we were all in kindergarten. We should all know better at this point in our lives.
All I'm saying is treat others you encounter right... even if the world is crumbling at your feet and your life is going miserably wrong. Your actions and words transmit to others around you and without knowing it you could easily ruin someone else's day. Don't allow that to happen to yourself and others around you.
Treating others poorly is a vicious cycle and it will come back to you. Someone out there will treat you badly and you will wonder to yourself, "what did I do to have them treat me in this way?"
