The Golden Rule Part Deux

April 4, 2017

There are times when you feel overwhelmed by how much "meanness" exists in the world. 

 

And then when you're out there, combatting the so-called meanness in the world, bam, it happens in your own house and sometimes right out of your own mouth. 

 

Ugh. 

 

After the talk about bullying at the Remetea school we had to have the same conversation at Casa Josef. Because every single person was once a bully to someone, or the person being bullied, or a bystander to it all. Or maybe all three. 

 

Interestingly enough, the convo turned into this sad excuse for either bullying someone or being the bystander: "But it's funny!"

 

And the only way I can counter that is with a "Yes, it might seem funny to you because you weren't the one picked on."

 

The truth is we are unbelievably sensitive of being slighted ourselves, but when it comes to other people, well, they should have thicker-skin. 

 

It's not so much putting yourself in their situation than putting a similarly-hurtful-situation-that-you'd-be-offended-by to yourself. If that makes sense. 

 

We don't get upset at the same things because we're different. But we all do get upset and hurt by others. And that I think really is the golden rule, acknowledging that you're a hypocrite and being mindful to not be one. 

 

(P.S. Did anyone else notice that Jesus was super-annoyed with hypocrites?)
