6. Not understanding the situation:

not understanding the situation

For instance your friend is mentally disturbed; it is your responsibility to console her/him. But there is a way for it. Do not talk about the incident that happened and maker him/her remember again. Talk general and give moral support. Give a suggestion not an order, always try to understand situation, you just can’t blame him/her about the mistake or shout! Understand them and divert them for a while, then talk to them calmly and make them understand. If you just go and analyse the problem and start preaching it hurts them still more. Your intention is to make them understand but that situation does not support what you are exactly trying to do.


7. Sarcasm:


Might sound like the above one but it is not. We speak so many things and majority communicate in numerous ways. Each has their own talking style and the para language as well. Sarcasm is an art of talking, but remembers all cannot understand it and all cannot take it as well, only the one who are sportive can bear it. Example: If you’re best friend come to you and ask about her hair style. Just tell it frankly it is good/bad/suiting etc but never be sarcastic it really hurts, it’s just like your over exaggerated fake comment in the name of sarcasm. It really hurts them a lot; once he/she has respected you and valued your opinion you just can’t try to be cool and sarcastic.Weigh the context and react.


8. Over joking:

Jokes are the refreshers of our life. Entertainment is always remembered and it always pays. Sometimes teasing is also considered as a kind of joke. Here again the limit factor comes into the scene. So you might hurt by over joking. For example: Never criticize on physical disabilities your friend may be dwarf/height , thin/fat, never make fun of it. Once in a while it is fun but too much fun is too bad. So just think thrice before you make fun of others. Crack a joke in a subtle way.


9. Short tempered:

It is most often seen thing. You are short tempered and you can’t get rid of it. But never show your short tempered nature to anyone, sometime for no reason you get angry, it is not your mistake because you are by nature like that. But you can’t carry that attitude as well. Your short tempered nature hurts many people around you. You might have reason to get out of your temper but that doesn’t mean that others should dwell with you. They get hurt a lot initially and finally there are chances of losing the good relationship.


10. Straight forwardness:

straight forwardness

It is always good to be straight forward and firm at your decisions. Instead of cribbing or back biting later it is good to be frank and to the point . But remember it again depends on the context; sometimes it is good to control your emotions. For example if your friend fails because of her inefficiency you can’t pin point your friend’s mistakes. Take time chill out, cheer them and tell them later. The more straight forward in nature you are the more aggressive and harsh the body language seems to be. Remember the biggest game in your life is to deal people and society intelligently. Always being straightforward is not commendable.


Conclusion: No matter what just don’t be too much attached to anyone or too much affectionate. Maintain a moderate relationship with everyone , in that way you will neither hurt someone nor hurt by someone!
