Treating Friends As You Want Them to Treat You

People will come and go, some are only in our lives for a little while. It is normal to argue, and sometimes we forget ourselves hurting those we love. It is important to admit when we are wrong, and make every effort to treat our friends the way we want them to treat us.

Think Before You Speak

When we are upset or angry we can often take it out on those closest to us without realizing it. This is when we do the most damage because they do not deserve this treatment from us.

Step Back
When you get angry or upset it is important to step back from the situation and calm down before having contact with those you love. It will prevent you from taking your feelings out on them. Calming down first allows you to talk about what is going on without getting upset about it.


When we are hurt we react, and if we are already under stress we can overreact to the littlest things. We read things into things that meant entirely the opposite. When we are upset we read things wrong and hear them wrong.

Calm people ask when people meant instead of simply reacting to what they thought was meant. It is important to take the time to process things so that we do not react in a manner that hurts others.

Keeping those You Love

When we treat the ones we love like we want to be treated they show us love and kindness. It is important to keep the fact they are not the ones hurting us in mind when we are having a bad day.

Turning to our friends is one thing, taking out everything that is wrong on them is unacceptable. We have to learn to talk things out, and while we can lean on our friends it is important not to beat them up over something someone else did.

I prefer to walk away when angry as not to flare up the situation

I try to be careful which words to speak since in this era of extra sensitivity words can harm the other person.

I always try to be careful of what I say. They say you always hurt the ones you love the most the worst. Know when to say your sorry is very important.

Husband left me and my kids, i was passing though pains, sorrow, heartbroke, going crazy but this is how i restored happiness back in my life by getting my husband back. I’m Sandra Jason from UK. I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband with two kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past 7 months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of Dr Frank Ojo a spell caster. So, If you have any problem contact him, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, Thanks to Dr Frank Ojo for bringing back my husband ,and brought great joy to my family once again, so here his email address { } Website address:, His Mobile number: +234)80- 7237-0762, He is a super natural Human and he is the best spell caster online contact him if you have any problem.
