If rudeness is an epidemic then I’d love to share to you it’s antidote: by being calm.
Calmness is a stable source for your strength in any disappointing situation. By being calm, it does not mean suppressing anger but by learning to be detached on the situation that awakens anger or pushes you to rage. It is wise to be objective so you can be more assertive.
There is a way on confronting rudeness like when turning the situation by asking, “Is there anything I can do to help?”
The other effective ways in confronting a rude person are:
– Try to understand why the person is rude and respond on those reasons.
– Don’t take it personally, be cool and don’t lose your calmness.
– If necessary, confront it otherwise ignore it. Don’t take it personally.
– Don’t expect the rude behaviour to change as rude people have their blind spot, they are unaware of such deficient attitude.
– Be wise to use selective firm and respectful reply.
– Be objective on the truth of the situation.
I hope these behavioural antidote on rudeness reminds you how to handle well a situation where the rudeness of a person happens to shake an unspeakable earthquake intensity on your calm and joyful outset.
