I think a good model, in terms of how to behave, is to think about how your actions would be perceived if they were written about on the front page of The New York Times tomorrow.
Your friends and family would open up the paper, read it, and the article would then accurately describe your behavior. Is that a story you would like for them to read to learn more about the wonderful things you are doing? Or, is it a story that would cause them to think ill of you?
If your actions would cause your friends to become concerned if they understood the facts on the front page of The Times, then you shouldn’t do whatever it is that you’re contemplating on doing.
