Learning to relate creates great mates.

Learn to relate.

Human kind is made up of multiple colour, national, ethnic and cultural groups, not to mention myriad body shapes, genders, religions, fashions, fetishes, etc, etc, etc. But we are SO the same. We all want to feel safe, respected, valued, loved and secure.

Learning to relate to others is one of the most life affirming things we can do, for SO many reasons.

For example, the Dali Lama teaches many things to help us live more productive, satisfying lives and his key lesson is to: “Exchange a self-centred attitude for one of thinking more about others. It is much easier to handle our problems when we realise everyone else has their own. A problem shared is a problem halved”.

It’s easier to get along with each other when we focus on the things we share in common, rather than our differences. Our likes, needs and dreams are similar, and even our differences are less than we think they are. All it takes is the effort to look past the “packaging”. And not only can relating to others add to our feelings of happiness, it can impact on our health and safety.

Creating positive relationships in our personal and professional life brings enormous benefits. How we speak and what we choose to say can either make people feel valued and understood or disrespected and marginalised. And let’s not forget that the way we treat others tends to come back to us. Our behaviour really matters.

We humans share 99.9% of our DNA. We are (MUCH) more closely related than surface appearances may suggest. Think of others as like ourselves and it builds better relationships. After all we are all related!

“Treat others the way you want to be treated” Not for nothing is this called the ‘Golden Rule’ or the ‘Rule of Life’

Or in the words of the iKi Rulz song, “Treat each other nice today – you will earn respect that way”

Have a caring week.
