If you’re not sure how to handle a situation with another person, think of how you would want another to handle it with you. If you’re wondering, “What’s the right way to do this?” simply think of how you’d appreciate it being handled by another. If you’re comfortable with another handling the situation this way, then it follows you can be comfortable doing the same thing yourself. Is someone else entitled to make this request of you? Then you’re entitled to do the same. There’s no guarantee everyone else will react the same way you do. However, this is the best objective standard you can use. Chances are, it will work. What’s certain is that you can feel good about it.
