The golden rule caused lots of comments. Before I respond, I want to give you an addendum. Don’t do anything to yourself that you wouldn’t wish on others.
For example, take envy. Do you ever feel envious of others? Think that their lives are easier, they have more money, more time, more of this, less of that? Envy is an unpleasant state; would you wish it on others? No? Don’t do anything to yourself you wouldn’t wish on others. Let envy go. Replace it with something else, something that you would wish on others. Maybe appreciation. Maybe many other things.
