How Do You Make Others Feel?

All the cool kids are doing it. Stop treating people like shit and valuing things. That is all. Do you treat people with as much kindness, understanding and compassion as you could? Via: 8.46am

Honey Honey

My ex boyfriend taught me the true meaning of the phrase, you catch more flies with honey. A lesson he learned from his father, a successful businessman. He was the first person to do frozen at sea salmon, selling his technique to the Japanese.

In the four years of our relationship, I watched him negotiate with people over things that weren’t bargain items. He never failed to get a discount. I also watched my mom talk many taxi drivers, newsstand men, restaurants…into giving her free everything. Simply due to kindness, the way you speak to people, the way you make them feel. Next time you’re irritated don’t bitch the person out, just try to understand them, treat them like the human they are and it will work wonders. A thank you so much, in a tone of genuine appreciation can go a long way.

Try it. You’d be surprised. This is why people are loyal to me, because I care, I treat them with kindness, compassion and love. It seems small, but it moves mountains. Could you be more kind in your day to day life, especially when you’re upset? Via: Sigh Humans

A Rule Of Thumb

Always remember to be kind, especially when you’re in a position of power. There is absolutely no reason to treat other people poorly, just because you can. As a society we get so competitive with one another, when the only person you need to compete with is yourself. We are all unique individuals, snowflakes, fingerprints, the ever changing moment, we all serve our purpose. There is enough room for everyone.

My first happy hour as a creative director went astoundingly well, especially for being last minute. I pulled everything together in less than 24 hours. This was my third day on the job. Easily I could have been big-headed, talked smack to anyone whose ever wronged me, and displayed a multitude of unmannerly behavior. But that’s not my vibe. As previous posts stated, I’ve felt states of depression, I’ve gone through traumatic events, I would never want to make anyone feel low. No matter what happens in life, my rule of thumb is “always treat people how you want to be treated.” Something my mother told me.

People who bring down others are miserable and insecure. Happy hoes ain’t hating, hating hoes ain’t happy. Be honest with yourself, have you been discourteous to others? Are you a happy hoe or a hating hoe? Why? Photo: Girlboss
