Doesn’t it disappoint you that nowadays, good manners and acts of kindness take people by surprise when ideally, these should come as naturally as breathing? No matter how differently we were raised, shouldn’t admirable social behavior prompt us to follow suit? I am positive that growing up, most of us did our fair share of messing up and causing adults around us to shake their heads at our choice of words and our actions. We learn (through reprimands or influence) not to repeat certain acts, acknowledge our mistakes, and be bold enough to make amends; however, there are still people our age or older who display offensive behavior and believe it’s acceptable. Why? Trying to come up with an answer will definitely take time. So instead of figuring out why certain people are the way they are, I decided to outline helpful tips for better behavior.
