society, you feel encroached upon. How could they take your trust for granted
and transgress your safe zone? You feel like your basic human rights have
been breached and you have been disrespected. |
Don’t let this trauma of bad manners make you permanently mistrustful or fearful. Take the incident into perspective. Was this malicious intent or naiveté? Does this person lack experience or are they possibly ignorant?
Drop your rigid expectations of others social behavior. Of course, don’t let others abuse you, but if it is a matter of perception open you mind and accept another’s faux pas. Without taking their impolite behavior personally, let your hurt and frustration role off your back and relax.
