Some words can really hurt relationships. They may be part of the dictionary but, they shouldn’t be part of your spiel. Here are a few words you should avoid:
- Again: Forget about the trend, deal with the issue at hand. Bringing back the past will only make things worst and put everyone on the defensive.
- Always: Very few things always happen in relationships. People are rarely that consistent. Why accentuate a trend? For impact?
- Never: A real never requires a lot of observation. A strong word for something you can’t really prove.
- Easy: You may think so but, what’s easy to you is not necessarily easy to other people. Let them be the judge of what they consider easy. It will just make you appear less condescending.
