Remember negativity can be contagious. So can Positivity! So let’s all try to be positive just for one day!
A student told me yesterday that she treats people the way they treat her. So if they are rude, she will be rude right back and that's what she was taught. Isn't that the right and justified way to deal with people? I actually said something wise that made her think for a moment. I said, if someone isn't very nice to me, I still respond to them in a nice way. They might just be having a bad day and if I'm nice, they may feel a little better and stop being rude. Everyone can have a bad day, we don't know what is going on in their life. Someone could be dying, you never know. Should we just continue the rudeness, which extends to more and more people, or should we stop it if we can by just a smile or kind word?
Attitudes are contagious.
It takes 2 to argue. Arguments are not started by the first angry word. There is no argument if there is no angry response.
Am I right?
