MIND YOUR MANNERS




Not everything is learned from school…and not everything had to be spoonfed, or taught to us.

I believe that there are learnings instilled to us and some as a result of understanding people and ourselves. We all want the same respect, and we all hope to be happy. These both have the same factor: people around us. With this, it then comes to mind, “Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others do unto you”. In fact this is very basic. And very easy to follow…and yet, some tend to forget or maybe intentionally disregard it. We need not be reminded that it is hurtful for others to be laughed at. How will you feel when a group of people suddenly burst out laughing when you trip over? We should be sensitive to how degrading for a low earning individual to be asked of his salary. Do you think you can call measuring a person’s status or capability respectful? Even staring at someone openly can make that person uneasy. Will the reason for your unwavering stare be clear to the recipient of that curiosity? Or of that meaningful look? Or of your comparison?

Whatever your reason maybe…always put yourself in the other persons shoe for you to understand what your actions may do. What he or she might think and feel, and of what that doing says of YOU!

Manners are very important when you have a group of people living or interacting with each other on a regular basis. Manners are what is separating us humans from animals. Different culture have different standards, but universally, bad manners are bad manners no matter what country or what time period.
