Author requests article critique


A guideline I made for myself and others. I may and will probably add to this over time.

I vow to myself the following from this day forth until my demise that:

I will forgive myself for past mistakes and learn from them,
-that I will never repeat them or
-that I will learn something new from them everytime and if not
-I will revaluate them and see why they are constant

I will forgive others for hurting me and see that,
-no one is perfect and
-that everyone has mistakes and
-not everyone realizes what they have done wrong and
-I must see past anothers faults for their beauty and
-realize that I have hurt others too

I will not judge others anymore,
-that I will see that no one is perfect or
-realize that people see things differently or
-realize that they may think I am wrong for my views and/or
-remember/acknowledge that I do not liked to be judged myself

I will respect myself,
-that I have the right to live and
-that I have the right to feel and
-that I have the right to like/dislike what I want and
-that I have the right to be myself and
-that I have the right to mold everything about myself and
-that I have the right to educate myself and
-that I have the right not to be perfect and
-that I have the right to choose AND
-that I WILL choose to live and
That I will honor my being to its fullest extent meaning;
-I will love my body and
-I will love my personality and
-I will love my spirit and
-I WILL love my life

I will respect others,
-that I will give them privacy/space and
-that I will not judge and
-that I will not gossip and
That I will love them for being themselves meaning;
-that I will not care for what age they are and
-that I will not care for any disabilty of any kind and
-that I will not care what gender they are and
-that I will not care what preference they have and
-that I will not care what skin color they are and
-that I will not care what ethnicity they are and
-that I will not care what religion they are and
-that I will not care what their likes/dislikes are and
-that I will not care whom they are involved with and
-that I will not care what others have said and
-that I will understand they have a past and
-that I will not care what their occupation is as long as they hurt no one and
-that I will help then WHEN they need it and IF they ask or IF they do not realize they need help
That I will not degrade their life meaninig;
-that they have the right to choose how they want to live and act and
-that I can offer advice but not intrude and
-that their decisions are THEIRS and NOT mine and
-realize that their physical/sexual/mental/emotional/verbal/spirtual individuality is sacred and
-not think untruths of them when I do not know them or not everything about them myself

I promise too,
-value everything and
-respect others and
-love everyone and everything and
-to NEVER hurt purposely ANY living thing OR corrupt ANY environment which is;
Nature, (dirt, oceans, sky and everything in it);
-People (meaning evolved humanoid being),(of any species)
-Animals, (of any species)
-Bugs, (of any species)
-Plants, (of any species)
Space, (and everything in it);
-Planets, (of any size, shape, weight, color)
-Solar Systems, (of any size, shape, weight, color)
-Galaxies, (of any size, shape, weight, color)
Places, (of health, education, transportation, food/drink, support, beliefs)
-think positive when everything is negative and
-try new things and
-always take a second glance and
-look at things differently and
-see more than one way to things and
-consider new ideas/thoughts/views/opinions/suggestions/advice and
-to NEVER give up NO matter how difficult ANYTHING or ANYONE becomes and
-to LIVE

I am sorry for and if,
I have hurt anyone and anything in any way meaning;
-I have been ignorant by choice and because of this...
-I have offened them in any way, shape or form and/or
-I have judged their beliefs and/or
-I have thought of them wrongly in any way, shape or form and/or
-I have physically/sexualy/mentally/emotionaly/verbaly/spirtuality damaged them and/or
-I have never gotten to know them for no reason and/or
-I have ignored them and/or
-I have abused them and/or
-I have lied to them and/or
-I have lied about them and/or
-I have lied about others to them and/or
-I have not appreciated them for appreciating me
I have hurt myself in anyway meaning;
I have been selfless and because of this...
-I have lied to myself and/or
-I have physically/sexualy/mentally/emotionaly/verbaly/spiritualy damaged myself and/or
-I have refused to acknowledge my faults and/or
-I have refused to forgive myself and/or
-I have not let myself be happy and/or
-I have not done what I wanted when I could have done so and/or
-I have let others tell me what to do when they were wrong and/or
-I have let others tell me who I was when they were wrong and/or
-I have refused the help of good people and/or
-I have closed my mind when it should have been open

I must remember,
-everything has its own special value whether to me or others and
-life is hard and
-anything I want is hard to get and
-that I must continue to RESPECT everything and everyone around ME
-that some people do not want me to be happy and
-that there are people who want me to be happy and
-that there ARE people who love me or WILL love me and/or CAN love me and
-that I will NOT always like everything but I must see it from another perspective or cope and
-there CAN be second chances or
-if there isn't to look for it or something else in another place in a different way, shape or form and
-change can be good or bad and
-no matter what it is to not be afraid and
-to NEVER EVER give up EVER!
These things are or should be important to me,
-my FAMILY (blood, non-blood)
-my FRIENDS (of any different walk of life)
-my PETS (of any species)
-my SIGNIFICANT OTHER (spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend)
-my EDUCATORS (of any form)
-my COMRADES (schoolmates, acquantinces, workers)
-my NEIGHBORS (everyone around me)
-my WORLD (everything within it and going on in it)
-my HOME (the environment friendly to me)
-my DREAMS (of any kind)
-my GOALS (of any kind)
-my LIFE (its purpose, meaning, existance, fate and significance)

I WILL keep my vow. NO ONE and NOTHING will break it EVER. My FREE WILL is MY choice and MY choice only. IF this vow is broken it WILL be by MY own doing for MY own reasons. IF it is broken by MISTAKE, I WILL go over it AGAIN and REESTABLISH it. This vow WILL be a guideline for MY life and I WILL respect it and I will HONOR it. It is MY choice to RESPECT and HONOR this guideline for I DO NOT want to hurt ANYONE or ANYTHING! And by doing so, I WILL respect MYSELF!
