    We Just Got Rid of Rudeness

    Waiting For a Change

    I think we excuse bad behavior most the time because we believe it is gonna change. That it is not going to last, it's only temporary. Even if that temporary lasts for years. We always want to see the good in people especially if it's someone very close or family. We cannot...

    You make a mistake, apologise.

    You hurt someone who cares for you deliberaty, apologise. Why is it so hard for people to say sorry and actually mean nowadays ? Do they have that much pride and ignorance in them so as not to see the nature of their selfishness ?

    Many People Simply Do Not Care Anymore How They Act.

    People don't care what language they use or the tone it is said in. It seems that we (many of us) have become a society of self-obsessed, arrogant, obnoxious individuals. Rudeness is never justified whether in any area of our lives. I know that thoughts are not easily...

    Yeh Peeps

    I remove from my circle those who misrepresent their age.. that is under-age saying they are 18-21 but in chat or message they tell me they are younger than what their profiles say. I also dump and block those who have content in their stories that could be used in a criminal...

    Kids Acting Badly

    Kids, now what comes to mind when you think of kids, not goats. Children running around the supermarket unattended . Their parents find it's easier to ignore them, instead of controlling them. We can't blame the children, because we all Need boundaries . Blame the parents...

    I'm Guilty of It!!!

    I am really guilty of doing this and I don't often stop to wonder why. This is just one example, my friends mother didn't want her as a child and either did her dad, so her dads mother and father took her in. They were old fashioned people and had no idea of what life was like...

    Like if someone is putting you down

    or saying rude things to you, especially family (which is my issue here), tell them! Don't excuse them just because they're family and you love them, or because they're just being themselves. Hell no, the more you let them get away with things, the more they'll do it. Oh, can't...
