Counseling On Demand


May 28, 2018

Most rudeness is unintentional.  Michael P. Lauder of Australia says that rudeness happens when some behavior happens in a way that doesn't align with how people think it should.

Even though most rudeness is unintentional you still need to be mindful of your own behavior. 

Focus on the thoughts and feelings you have as you interact with people.  The person's behavior may not align with your own perspective, but does that mean they're being deliberately rude or attacking you?

You want to be viewed as authentic, so view the other person as coming from  a good place.

Think about how you feel rudeness.  Is it a tightening in your mind or chest?  Rudeness can be contagious when you are rude back in defense.  You can break that cycle.  Step away from the situation.  Focus on keeping a positive element with people.  Use eye contact and greeting people with a smile to keep the interaction on a positive level.

Also you can let some rudeness go.  You can't stop people from being rude, but you don't need to retaliate.

If you need to address someone's rude behavior, don't be rude back.  Instead address the behavior and feelings.  Just say that you can see you're not on the same page.  That gives the person a chance to re direct.
