10 ways to get along better

Ten Ways to Get Along Better in this Great Big World!

1. Before you say anything to anyone, ask yourself 3 things:

a. Is it true?
b. Is it kind?
c. Is it necessary?

2. Make promises sparingly and keep them faithfully.

3. Never miss the opportunity to compliment or say something encouraging to someone.

4. Refuse to talk negatively about others; don’t gossip and don’t listen to gossip.

5. Have a forgiving view of people. Believe that most people are doing the best they can.

6. Keep an open mind; discuss, but don’t argue.

7. Forget about counting to 10. Count to 1,000 before doing or saying anything that could make matters worse.

8. Let your virtues speak for themselves.

9. Cultivate your sense of humor; laughter is the shortest distance between two people.

10. Do not seek so much to be consoled, as to console; do not seek so much to be understood, as to understand; do not seek so much to be loved as to love.
