I know I’m being grumpy, but there are just certain things that grind my nerves down to the root….I’m just going to come out and say it: ‘Rudeness is NOT Okay’
Being rude can be defined as – ‘not having or showing concern or respect for the rights and feelings of other people. In other words (lack of manners) SERIOUSLY, there is no excuse for being RUDE.😑Okay, we are not perfect. We all have our bad moments. Right?
However, you don’t have to be a Proverbial contentious person who is just, all-too-ready to tell the others off and put them in their place. And it definately doesn’t justify treating another human being with deep disrespect. Rudeness Hurts. We all have feelings. Lets be honest: NOBODY likes to spend time around someone like that. I know I don’t.
For most of my life, I didn’t pay much attention to Rude people. But Now, I just cannot take it anymore. I see rude people. I am surrounded by them. They are everywhere (pushing, shoving, shouting into cell phones) Sometimes,what we say or how we say it speaks volumes and can heighten or dim in an instant!
Having fine manners can make a person beautiful. Showing respect to others is sign of good manners.’Always do to others as you wish them to do to you if you were in their place‘ Your manners say a lot about you, more than you realise. Having good manners is not something you were born with but were TAUGHT. It defines you as a PERSON. It demonstrates an awareness of SELF-WORTH and shows your POLITENESS to other people. I am so glad that my parents instilled in me, good manners. Thank you, Mum and Dad❤
By nature, I am a gentle, compassionate and optimistic person. My philosophy in life is that the world is full of brightness, love and endless possibilities to seize. I have always been taught to look on the bright side and to see the good in other people. I know that part of the fruit of God’s Spirit is LOVE. (1 Corinthians 13:5 ) ” does not behave rudely , does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil (NKJV)
Proverbs 11:12 says :”He who is devoid of wisdom despises his neighbour, but a man of understanding holds his peace.” How apt is that. You can’t be truly rude until you understand good manners. If only we could focus on the Magic Phrases we learnt as kids and use them often. “Please, Excuse Me, May I, Thank you.” In other words think before you speak.
Having good manners is not rocket science…
MIND YOUR MANNERS!
Blessings and Love…
