When you’re in a conversation or trying to become a part of one, wait for the other person to finish speaking. No one likes a flow-breaker. Subtly ask for permission to put your point across by using words like “If I may add…” or “Would like my opinion on this…”

Talking with a condescending or cranky tone is not only unwelcome but also very rude. You know it, because you don’t like it either. So when you’re enraged or worried, try to relax and compose yourself before speaking your mind out.

It’s an urge you have to learn to control. Do not treat every piece of information as a gossip material. You eventually lose trust of your near and dear ones as this chronic habit displays a lack of higher morale.

Keep your use of “I”s in check. You might have climbed the Everest, but you don’t want to come across as someone who is only full of themselves. Arrogance is a big no-no.

This one is easier said than done. Learn to share. Not everybody has to be Joey because it is considered very sweet to offer someone your food before you eat. Sharing really is considered as a way of caring. Try it, and you’ll see.

Take a hint, guys. You might love to spend time with this friend of yours and their plans sure might be fun, but learn to give them some space and do their own thing without you.

In a time where authenticity is hard to come by, pretending to be someone else or lying can be very irritating for others. Be yourself and be unapologetic about it. At the same time, be nice, kind and compassionate towards the opinions and lives of people around you. Then if people don’t like you, find a new circle where you can best be yourself.

None of us are mind readers. So if you have committed any of these offenses before, you’re forgiven. But now that you recognize that your habits might be annoying to your acquaintances, friends and family, you can take conscious actions to correct yourself.
