When we come to the issues surrounding people’s personal behaviors, beliefs and cultures, we do realise that there is so many differences when compared with ourselves.
Name it and you won’t stop filling the list of differences so obvious between you and your friends, partner, parents, sibling, course mates and even coworker.
The question that therefore comes is that do we really need to bother too much about these differences? The answer is “we should know those differences but shouldn’t worry too much about it”.
Anyway, the knowledge of those differences gives no solution to our dealings with these people in study but our mitigation of those differences which we found extremely difficult to put up with can lead to a better and most importantly, a safer and lasting relationship without hurting anyone. Few solutions or mitigation procedures will be shared in this piece of article, please do comment and tell us how this might have helped or your other view of it. Thank you
Be calm whenever these differences posses danger and almost pushes you to react. Try to say nothing but smile. You may find this difficult at the first time but I assure you that it works.
Be attentive to others even if you don’t want to end up believing what they had believed or followed. Have a clear understanding of what he/she takes so dearly as conviction.
Mitigation 3 (important)
Be smart about your dealings with these people. Some might want to cash in on your patience with them since they have noticed your attention to what they believed. Give well groomed emphasis on what you believe but be frank and calm about it.
Stay safe in your conversation and chats. As much as possible, do not get into an argument. Only listen and keep your ground “if need be” because your beliefs may be wrong.
At the end, you must have fully understood the basis for their beliefs and reason for such “questionable” personalities. You will therefore be able to deal better with people no matter what differences might exist between you without hurting anyone.
