We are all aware that sometimes socializing may be challenging due to the variety of people we encounter and their sometimes unfriendly moods. However, the following are some reminders that you must keep in mind.
- Never call someone continually more than twice. If they don’t pick up the phone, assume they have an urgent matter to handle.
- Even before the person you borrowed money from remembers or asks for it, return whatever money you have borrowed. It demonstrates your morality and character. The same is true for pencils, lunch packs, and umbrellas.
- Never accept a lunch or dinner invitation from someone and order the most costly item on the menu.
- Avoid embarrassing questions such, “Oh, so you aren’t married yet? Or “Do you not have children?” or “Why didn’t you buy a house?” Or why don’t you purchase a vehicle? God forbid, it’s not an issue of yours.
- Always let the person behind you in by opening the door. It makes no difference if the person is a junior or a senior. By being kind to someone in public, you don’t become smaller.
- If you share a cab with a friend and he or she pays now, consider paying the next time.
- Respect differing points of view. Remember that what appears to you as a 6 will look as a 9 to someone facing you. Furthermore, a second view is useful as an alternative.
- Never interject during a conversation. Just let them spill it out. Listen to them all and filter them all, as they say.
- Stop and never do it again if you tease someone and they don’t appear to like it. It inspires one to work harder and demonstrates your appreciation.
- When someone assists you, be sure to say “thank you.”
- There is virtually never a good excuse to make weight-related remarks. Simply state, “You look terrific,” and they’ll chat about reducing weight.
- Don’t swipe left or right when someone gives you a photo on their phone. The future is always uncertain.
- If a coworker discloses that they have a doctor’s visit, don’t inquire as to the reason; simply reply, “I hope you’re okay.” Avoid placing them in the awkward situation of having to disclose their personal ailment. They won’t need your curiosity to tell you what they desire;
- Never ask about a coworker’s reason for a doctor’s appointment; instead, simply reply, “I hope you’re okay.” Avoid making them disclose their personal sickness to you in a humiliating situation. Without your curiosity, they will tell you if they want you to know.
- Respect both the CEO and the cleaner equally. People will notice if you treat someone above you with respect instead of being disrespectful to them, which is not impressive.
We are all having difficulty dealing with others, but we must always remember that even if it is difficult, we must always treat them in the appropriate and proper manner that they deserve.
