Wow.

Why Mean Cheat

It's too bad he was on Oprah.
Let me break this down simply:

You act like a child, you get treated like a child. You act like an adult, you get treated like an adult.

The problem with demanding respect is that you come to the table assuming you deserve it. Come to the table assuming you deserve nothing. Come to the table assuming you must earn everything you desire. Come to the table assuming you won't always get what you want.

At least then you can be pleasantly surprised.

For Christians it is much simpler: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Am I a jerk, or do I just not put up with bullshit? I hope everyone calls me out on my bullshit my entire life. And so I call others out on theirs.
