I can tell about two of my own set of values: one is “I never judge a person by what others say”. The second one is “I never carry tales”.
I form my own opinion when I meet a person. I never judge a person by what others say. They may have a wrong concept of a thoroughly nice person. I have found people often misjudge a person. They have their own pre-conceived notions in their minds, and they wrongly apply those when they meet the unfortunate individual.
One rule which I have applied zealously in my own life is never to create further rift among two people who are not pulling on well with each other.
When someone confides in me about their own life, and maybe mention another person, I never tittle tattle. I simply abhore it. It is as good as forgotten once it reaches my ears. I have never carried it further (with more lies added as fuel to ignite a fire) to the person mentioned. People who do such things are evil that’s all I can say.
I Walk the Line
Have you got a code you live by? What are the principles or set of values you actively apply in your life?
I was the shortest among my siblings, five feet one inch to be exact. I was never bothered about it till after my marriage. To tell you the truth I wasn’t aware of my shortcoming. I was made to realize this FACT by my very ‘Zealous’ sister in law time and again and others like her. I am sure it was very rude on their part but in those days I started feeling that somehow I was a big culprit. Now why didn’t I had a height of five eight or something like that? Now what to do? I was miserable on the inside over my this very Serious Flaw.😢
I was being immature you can say, but you can excuse me, my eighteenth birthday was still a month away. I took to wearing heels. I use to totter around on them, much to the amusement of my husband. My feet would be killing me but I would have a fake smile plastered on my face. Pregnancy rescued me from those heels. Thank God for that.
I grew up and stopped caring about rude comments. In my mind I was perfect the way I was. God had made me and you don’t criticize God’s Creation. 😊
