Call me old school but it is sure disappointing witnessing how people treat one another today. Whatever happened to the golden rule of treating others like the way you wish to be treated?

In the history of the world, no one ever went wrong by being polite. In fact, many people will tell you that life is better when we treat each other with respect. Unfortunately, this form of common decency does not appear to be that common today.

But it doesn’t mean it has to stay that way. All it takes is a few consistent gestures of kindness and respect and you will see a positive change in those you interact with. Hopefully, it becomes contagious.

During my upbringing my parents constantly kept me on tract with the use of two phrases – “Please” and “Thank you”. They echo respect, dignity and harmony and open a lot of doors.
