things that should be commonsense but are not

things that should be commonsense but are not

 

1. hold doors open for strangers

even if they’re a little farther away

even if they walk slowly

 

you can spare the five seconds to be kind

 

2. don’t stare

 

it makes others uncomfortable and believe there is something wrong with them

 

self conscious

 

unless you like them

then try not to stare too much

 

2.5. don’t be a creep

 

3. laugh loudly

but never at the misfortunes of others

 

it is healing only when it is genuine and positive

 

4. never ask questions that you would not feel comfortable answering yourself

 

mind your own business

and only ask if you are invited to do so

 

even if you are invited

tread lightly

 

5. appreciate your own beauty

 

don’t worry too much about the opinion of others

 

it only takes away focus from whose opinion matters the most

 

yours

 

6. always say thank you

especially for small deeds

 

you can never say it enough

even if you wanted to

 

7. apologize

even if it’s not your fault

 

pointing the blame broods conflict

and conflict broods more conflict when no one backs down

 

you don’t have to be right all the time

 

step down from your throne

 

8. slow down

if you’re busy all the time

 

you can never give more than 100%

 

9. stop

and don’t forget to admire the stars

especially on a night like this

 

natural beauty all around us

and we never seem to notice
