Rule of Life

Rule of Life, According to Me, in One Word: HELP

My grandfather always said, “Leave this place better than the way you found it.

Examples:

Help others be better people.

Help heal the earth.

Help yourself improve as a person.

An important component of this rule is “don’t judge.

Everyone has a path to take and you may not understand why they do what they do; you don’t need to.

People may need your help, advice, or your silence – but not your judgment.  Your help can include disapproval of their actions, and may even include informing them of why this is the case if this information will help them improve, but it doesn’t include looking down on them.  When faced with an opportunity to judge someone, it is an opportunity to learn a lesson.
