“Primitive societies live by the Rule of Might, and the strong prevail.
Advanced societies live by the Rule of Law, and the privileged prevail.
Enlightened societies live by the Rule of Love, and everyone is lifted higher.

We live in a society set by rules and regulations. Without them, it will be ultimate chaos. Such as these rules on planet Earth, the Universe itself abide by rules that aren’t applicable in an environment based by laws that are not applied or respected. The laws of gravity no longer works in outer space. We see tons of changes happening every single day, either it be in your direct environment or simply within yourself. You are NOT the same person you were yesterday and will not be the same tomorrow. Everyday, we absorb new information which allows us to be more aware to what is going on around us, hence, making us smarter. Because of this newfound knowledge, we perceive things differently, and start understanding more about the rules that are created by other humans that may or may not benefit us in any shape or form. Despite what is going on around, it is important to live by your own rules. Respecting others should be the law of the land and applied by everyone on planet Earth.
Learn to love others as you want them to love you. Everything should be a two way street as many tend to focus on taking and never giving. The only people at fault in these kind of relationships is that they let things happen for way to long. They forget how to say NO and fall into the abyss of wanting to please others just to be accepted. Get yourself away from that and be selfish at times. It is ok to think about yourself when you realize that others are taking advantage of you. Learn to say NO and if they come up with the famous rebuttal: “Wow, i never expected you to change for the worst”, respond with: ” Well, I am happy to disappoint you. Have a good life”. Remember, this is your life, and you are the one living it. Don’t expect others to help you in a time of need, but always expect them to ask for your help when they are experiencing hardship.
