Social interaction is a part of daily life. How you handle it can affect how people view you and treat you. Your manners really matter! Good manners are an important thing to have since it shows that you’re courteous to other people. Good manners can improve the following three areas of your life:
How you treat people makes an impression, for good or for bad. If you are mannerly, people will likely view you as mature and responsible—and they’ll treat you accordingly! If you are rude, however, people will conclude that you are interested only in yourself, and you could end up being bypassed for opportunities. When you show good manners, that’s usually the first thing people notice—and appreciate. You’ll also feel good about yourself because you know that you are doing the right thing.
Your Social Life
That is certainly true when it comes to friendship. People are drawn to those who are mannerly and who treat them well. After all, who would want to be in the company of someone who is rude or obnoxious? f you’re unmannerly, people won’t take you seriously. But if you act considerately, people will treat you with the same respect that you show to them.
The way people treat you
If you are always polite, over time, you may see improvement in the way even the most consistently rude people respond to you. Of course, if you are rude, you may get the opposite response.
HOW TO IMPROVE
Use Please and Thank You
Whenever you make a request or you need to ask for something, start by saying please. Once someone completes the task that you asked them to do, respond by saying thank you.
Listen to Others
Avoid trying to talk over them or cutting them off since you’ll come across as rude. If you and another person start talking at the same time, stop and ask them to continue to show that you care about what they have to say.
Avoid Using Bad Language
Inappropriate language can come across as rude, especially when you use it in public conversation. Do your best to try and eliminate curse words from your vocabulary while you’re talking with other people.
You can do this by helping people around you, whether they are younger or older. This could be as simple as holding a door open for someone or helping someone carry a heavy item. Respect other people’s personal space. If you accidentally bump into someone, say something like, Excuse me, I’m sorry.
Make a conscious effort to improve your manners. track your speech or conduct in the areas in which you want to improve. You will see that people appreciate you more.
Please Note: What is considered mannerly in one land could be considered rude in another. For example, in Japan it is customary for people to remove their shoes before entering a home. In other lands, that gesture might be considered impolite.
