Not a rule but you may want to chose it as, contemplate on this: Each moment we get to chose to accept it or reject it, to be happy or sad. No one's words and no thing can change that, unless you chose to let it and you go with others perceived reality, you then dive with their misery. Doesn't mean be aloof instead have emphaty and enthusiastically perhaps share the following message I was blessed with by
an enlightened man, a modern day Budha-Guru-teacher who in a note wrote me: "Live each moment as though you wished it."
As an exercise ...What If for one day your goal is to make every contact a good positive contact no matter who you come in contact with, no matter the social status. Failure is not an option. At the end of the day write down your experience. Look at what you drew and got in touch within your self to succeed.
Cheers and good times.
