Sometimes we get caught focusing on the negatives—everything that someone isn’t or doesn’t have. “Oh, her pants are nice, but damn, her edges are busted.” It starts of as small snarky comments, but before you know it, you’ll be the one with the foul mouth no one wants to be around. You’ll become the one who always has something mean to say.
You don’t know what other issue a person might be dealing with. Make someone’s life more bearable by holding your tongue whenever you want to blurt out a mean comment.
A compliment goes a long way, even if you don’t mean it.
