We cannot help others until we have a better understanding of ourselves. Treat others the way you would like to be treated. How can we treat people as we want to be treated until we know how we what to be treated?
What are we doing to understand who we are? Are we digging into our likes, dislikes, loves and hates? No, then how can we treat others the way we want to be treated?
