Just Rude includes actions we encounter every day that make us feel like we live in a world with some selfcentered individuals – people without regard for others.
These thoughtless actions are difficult for us to understand. We were taught not just to be responsible for our own actions, but that as members of a family and a community, we needed to think beyond ourselves.
As we grew up, we discovered that living in a world with others requires interdependence. We decided that being civil with each other, maybe even polite from time-to-time, actually reduces our own stress and makes us feel better.
Those little frustrations that we experience every day could be reduced, if we all lived more consciously, if each of us were more aware of those around us - and if we choose to be empathetic.
It’s simple really - just don’t be rude.
