Are you inadvertently turning people off? Here are the top actions that other people immediately judge you for.
If someone sees you toss your trash on the ground, they will think less of you. It’s especially egregious when there’s a trash can nearby.
If there’s not, just put your trash in your pocket. Don’t make the world worse.
If you put down others to feel better about yourself, others will think less of you. You may feel better now, but soon you’ll find that no one wants to be around you because you’re not nice.
Mean to Partner
We can only imagine how awful you are to your partner in private if you have no qualms about putting them down in public.
You should always treat your partner with dignity and respect regardless of the situation. Others judge you when you don’t.
Unable To Accept New Facts
Society has a weird way of celebrating those who dig in and refuse to change their views when presented with new facts, but some folks will judge you for it.
It’s okay to be wrong and to be misinformed. It’s okay to change your mind when presented with new information.
It’s one thing to be mean to your fellow man; at least he can fight back. But everyone will hate you if you mistreat an innocent animal.
Our pets rely on us for every aspect of their lives. Do right by them.
Kids are Kings
When I was a child, my parents would be on my case if I acted a fool in public or disrespected teachers. Nowadays, parents worship at the altar of their children. Kids can do no wrong.
We may not say anything if you refuse to discipline your child but trust we’re all judging you and feeling horrible for the kid who will grow up to be an entitled selfish jerk.
Calling Themselves “Alpha”
A surefire way to prove to everyone around you that you’re not a high-value “alpha” male is calling yourself that.
Confident men don’t have to run around shouting their greatness from the rooftops. They’re just out there living their lives.
“Alpha” men do not understand human relationships and cling to a theory that even the originator says is false.
Rude to Waitstaff
You can tell a lot about someone by how they treat those they deem beneath them. If people are rude to service staff, you learn two valuable lessons.
First, they believe human beings in low-paying jobs are beneath them, and second, they treat people they consider “beneath them” poorly.
Not Putting the Shopping Cart Back
Returning the shopping cart is a two-second test that shows whether someone is selfish. It takes so little time to replace the cart to the corral, and yet some people can’t be bothered.
Those who will talk bad about others to you will talk bad about you to others. We can’t trust those who spread lies and secrets about others. Not only is it bad form to speak poorly about others, but we can never be sure they don’t do the same to us.
Time Flies – Savor Every Moment
They often say time flies, and that’s true. We’re often so busy we don’t even notice the days and years slip away.
