amd: meditating

doing unto others as I do unto myself would make me a bad person

If there are effective paths to self-improvement that don't involve being mean to your self, I have not discovered them. It's only through criticism and denial that I become a better person. The best I can do is to try my best not to apply that same meanness to the people around me, which is harder than it sounds.
