THE TRUTH ABOUT COURTESY***

common courtesy

Courtesy: n. using good and/or right etiquette

Social etiquette varies slightly from culture to culture but kindness and consideration for another’s needs is what courtesy is all about.

Holding the door for the next human, making more room in an elevator, letting a customer with few items go first at the checkout line, giving up your seat for the handicapped on a bus, not using profanities, saying “please” and “thank you”, not talking loudly, dressing appropriately, not pointing at someone, not staring at someone, etc. are just a few examples of courteous behavior.

Meanness and/or rudeness is what frequently happens when courtesy is ignored and humans will instantly think less of you as a human.

What is true is that private household etiquette is frequently much different than social etiquette and it is easy for offspring who have been living a sheltered existence at home to lack courtesy in public, especially saying “please” and “thank you” where appropriate. Youth is frequently more selfish and rebellious against proper social etiquette and it sometimes takes them much more social exposure to learn the acceptable cultural norms which are gradually changing too.

THE TRUTH ABOUT APPROVEMENT

9142340-approved-and-rejected-icon-set-vector-illustration

Approvement: n. judging a subset(s) to be good and/or right and this judgment is sometimes bad and/or wrong for the average human.

(Criminals and/or deceivers) and/or liars frequently approve of bad and/or wrong behavior

Approval can come from a law or rule, judge, expert, authority, commoner, or immoral human.

Be careful who you get your approval from because it may be illegal and/or immoral.

Most humans are very opinionated and they impulsively approve or disapprove of many opinions, ideas, beliefs, and behaviors. If you approve of something then you usually say “yes” and emotionally feel pleasant about what you are approving of.

If you do not approve of something then you usually say “no” or use words like stupid, crazy, nasty, horrible, terrible, disgusting, outrageous, unacceptable, bad, lousy, shitty, crappy, it sucks, and many more words and phrases which convey disapproval.

You have to be careful not to offend someone by your disapproval of someone’s behavior because words like stupid will upset someone who doesn’t think that they are stupid. They may have done only a few stupid things in their recent past but not enough to be labeled or stereotyped as being a stupid human.

The danger in approving something arises when you have been deceived or lied to and trust that what a human is telling you is the truth.

You may invest much money in a friend recommended supper risky penny stock only to find out that almost all the value is gone in a day or two.

You may be very tempted to invest thousands in a company recommended by a friend of yours because it returns as much as 20% a year on invested money which turns out to be a Ponzi scheme and you lose it all.

You may trust an acquaintance’s promise to pay you back a $20 dollar loan only to find out that the acquaintance vanishes from view and never pays you back the $20.

You lend $2000 to a friend and he or she never pays you back and you lose a friend because you never forgive them for not paying you back.

You may approve of your offspring going out late at night on their own only to discover the next day that they went out and got drunk and did drugs with some bad friends.

You may approve of your spouse’s spending habits only to find out that she or he maxed out the credit card and created great financial stress.

You may say yes and do someone a small favor only to find out that they have a list of new favors to ask you which start to really annoy you.

You trust the dealer’s good description of a used car only to later find out that you purchased a lemon.

Be careful of approving anything where money changes hands and be wary of humans promising to do things when they have not fulfilled many of their promises in the past.

Beware of impulsive approval on important things in life such as buying a big house or committing to marriage which should require much conscientious thinking before saying yes to them, especially calculating the money which you will need to support a big house or family life.

WHAT TO TRY TO BE AND NOT TRY TO BE!!!

“There is an incomplete philosophical struggle and it is between two rather distinct extreme mindsets. One is frequently but not always bad – it is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, lust, resentment, inferiority, foundationless pride, superiority, and inflated ego or extreme selfishness. “The other is frequently but not always good – it is faithfulness, joy, peace, caring, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, controlled generosity, compromise, and compassion. The same struggle is sometimes going on inside you – and inside every other caring human, too.”

 

Try not to be envious, resentful, or jealous but try to be empathetic and benevolent instead

Instead of being unhappy and resentful of another’s possessions and characteristics and luck and circumstances, try to share in the feeling of accomplishment which another human is experiencing and feel that their good achievements, abilities, and circumstances are to be praised and not put down or criticized.

Try not to be cruel and mean but try to be kind or caring and sympathetic instead

Instead of willfully causing suffering and mental displeasure in a human and getting pleasure doing so try to be caring and sympathetic and share in the bad feelings and emotions caused by mistakes or bad circumstances which exist in a human’s life. You can be a strict and demanding disciplinarian or boss but try not to do it in a cruel and mean way.

Try not to be too greedy, selfish, with unfounded pride and too much superiority and arrogance but try to be with some generosity, caring behavior, and an adequate humility.

Try not to wallow in regret, pessimism, self-pity, sorrow, depression, hopelessness, guilt, and inferiority but try to be optimistically hopeful, happy, and develop as much selfconfidence and selfmotivation as possible by gradually changing more and more of your bad habits into good ones.

Above all try to be honest, sincere, truthful, and reliable and the bonds of your relationships with others will grow stronger and not weaker and you will be admired and respected by most close humans in your life.

Finally teach your offspring if you decide to have any this moral code- except in emergency situations-don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder!!!!!!
