I’m very much into having good manners and being considerate of all involved-something we used to call common courtesy. My stories will be about how to add more of it into day to day life.
Common Courtesy in Communicating
You abruptly walk out the door sighing in frustration. You hang up the phone suddenly, glad that conversation is finally over. Or, you end up not even responding to that text message because you know responding won’t get you any further than the headache that started when you first saw the text. We’ve all gotten up in arms over a misunderstanding when speaking with someone. Well, a few considerations can help make things a little clearer.
Common Courtesy While Living Together
Living with others can seem simple enough-you do your thing and they do their own thing. You believe everyone is on the same level. Each person equally contributing to the success and wellbeing of the household. Well, that’s all much better sounding than it can be at times because living with someone can cause tension if you’re used to being alone.
Common Courtesy During Loss
Wednesday September 15-one month and seven days since my buddy, my dad took his last breath. I remember because that Sunday morning he woke up calling on God to take him home. August 8, 2021 was a bittersweet day. But that doesn’t have to be when someone you love passes on.
