Why you should have “simple relationships” with others?
Usually we complicate the relationships with others by holding grudges, hating them, having arguments with them, etc.
It affects our lives to a great extent but it usually goes unnoticed. Like, when you see X person, you feel like punching him, something negative takes you over. So, cultivate the habit to pursue simple relationships with others:
¬ you will not see most people on daily-basis, so have a simple relationship with them. You will meet them for a very short period of time, so, be nice & helpful to them.
¬ don’t gossip. It is counter-productive. Not only it wastes your time but also it brings no change in the behaviour of the other person. So, avoid commenting “negatively” on others behind their back.
¬ be honest. Honesty is the best policy (*yes still). We don’t trust all, don’t we? And our behaviour is different to people whom we trust, like being more helpful to those we trust.
¬ usually prefer to behave as a professional “when in doubt”. Replicate what others might be doing at that point of time.
¬ Holding grudges.
¬ Making unrealistic promises.
¬ Giving undue favours (*always spot the deserving).
¬ Explaining why you did something again and again (*explain just once, it is on others to believe in you or not).
¬ Finding something called “love”.
