Important Social Rules that may Guide you through Life’s Journey

Hold on to your dignity

Never call anybody more than twice continuously. If they don’t return your calls, always assume they are busy or have something important to do.

Be worthy of your integrity

When someone loans you money, always be sure to return it before the person who borrowed the money asks for it. In doing so, you are demonstrating your integrity and character. The same act should apply to small items like books, pens, lunch boxes or umbrellas.

Respect!

When somebody takes you out for the first time, never order expensive meals from the food menu. First impressions count and you will rapidly lose respect from others.

Mind your business in some situations

Avoid asking uncomfortable questions like “Oh, aren’t you married yet?” or “Do you have children?” or “How come you didn’t buy a house?” It is important to understand that certain questions are none of your concern.

Courtesy is Important

When exiting or entering a building, always keep the door open to the person behind you. It does not matter whether the person is a boy, a girl, or an elderly person. You won’t become small by treating someone well in public, rather you will grow bigger.

A good deed deserves another

If you take a cab with a friend and he or she eventually pays for the trip, make sure you pay for the next trip.

Other people’s opinions count, too

As outrageous as it may sound, always respect different shades of opinion. Remember what seems like 9 for you can appear like a 12 to someone in front of you. If you think about it, second opinions are still a good alternative.

Good listeners are better at making decisions

Do not interrupt other people when they express their point of view. Let them speak their minds before making your conclusion.

Be wary of other people’s aspects

if you tease someone and they begin to show signs that they don’t like it, stop it and never do it again. This shows that you are familiar with their situation and they will appreciate you for it.

Be Grateful

Always be thankful when someone decides to help you.

Sensible decision

Praise one in public and when they err, criticize them privately.

Choose your words with care

There is hardly ever a reason to make comments about someone’s weight. If necessary, it is only polite to say, “You look fantastic.” If they want to talk about weight loss, then they will.

Again, mind your business

When someone shows you a picture on their phone, don’t slip left or right. You can never tell what’s next.

Use Your Discretion

If you find yourself in a situation where a co-worker tells you they have a medical appointment, don’t ask them what the appointment is for, just say “I hope you are okay”. Do not put them in the uncomfortable position of telling you about their illness. If they want you to know, they can do it without you being curious.

Treat everyone the same way

Treat the cleaner the same as you will treat your boss or a VIP. No one is impressed to what extent you can treat someone beneath you, but people will notice if you treat them with respect.

Manners while meeting up

If anyone talks to you directly, looking at your phone is rude behaviour.

Only When needed

Never advise unless you have been asked.

Demonstrate respect for others

Take off your sunglasses if you’re talking to somebody you met on the street. It’s an expression of respect. Moreover, eye contact is as important as your speech.

Exercise Humility

Never speak or boast about your wealth among poor people. In the same way, do not speak of your children in the midst of the barren.
