What Are YOUR Definite Yes and No Issues?

The Kindness Blog recently published a thought-provoking topic called “What issue is black and white for you?” It made me think. Many things were listed, some of which I agreed with and some not. Overall, it made me think of what my own personal “black and white” issues are. Here are some of mine:

  1. When you think of getting married, it should be all about the person you are marrying, not the trappings of the ceremony; the dress, flowers, ring, reception, cake, etc.
  2. Infidelity is a deal-breaker–period.
  3. Children are not cute accessories, they are adults in the making. Raise them as such.
  4. Pets are to be treated with love and respect, given proper veterinary care (especially spaying and neutering, and necessary shots), and cared for as a dear family member.
  5. You don’t get something for nothing–there is always a price to pay.
  6. Always use your turn signals. Other people on the road can’t read your mind.
  7. Don’t litter–please.
  8. If something is just too good to be true, it most likely isn’t.
  9. There is no excuse for rape.
  10. Good manners are always in style.
  11. Let rumors and speculation about people you know die with you. Instead, pass on good things.
  12. Politics and religion are private issues–you don’t need to hammer me with yours, and I don’t need to hammer you with mine.
  13. We can respectfully agree to disagree.
  14. Interrupting people while they are talking is RUDE.
  15. Choose your battles wisely.
  16. When dressing, please remember to check how you look from the back. Enough said.
  17. When someone gives you a gift, thank them face-to-face. If not, send them a handwritten thank-you note.
  18. It is cowardly to shout something offensive to someone from your car and then drive off. If you are going to be rude to someone, have the guts to face them and take the consequences.
  19. Tell your loved ones that you love them each and every day, even if you are temporarily mad at them.
  20. Be your best YOU.

So–how about you?
