If you want people to be your friend, be consistent
Take responsibility for the trust others have lost in you
Put as much emphasis on tone as you do on choosing the right words
If you want to be respected, be respectful
Expect me to be truthful
Take responsibility for your own choices that got you where you are
Show some effort before blaming everyone else for not doing what you think they should
Practice what you preach
Find something beautiful in the world and celebrate it
Use your time for something to be proud of
A parent’s job is to lessen the strife of the world for their child
Teach by example
Be able to admit if you were wrong or, at least not at your best
Be clear and reasonable about expectations
The only “stupid” question is the one you don’t ask, and anyone who has a problem with questions is a problem themselves
Don’t expect others to forego their own self-preservation to please you
Be the kind of person that others want to be around
Accept other people’s opinions as valuable, especially if they differ from yours
Don’t be afraid to try something different, but don’t feel like you HAVE to try something just because it’s different
