13 People Share What They Think Are the Unwritten Rules Everyone Should Follow in Life

Be polite.

Hold the door for others.

Don’t cut in line.

Keep your hands to yourself.

These are some of the unwritten rules that I think all people should know and follow.

And here’s what folks on AskReddit had to say about this!

1. Over and done with.

“Relationships with your ”best friend” can just end abruptly without you ever getting closure.

At that point, you’re better off just moving on, it’s frustrating that you aren’t able to let your feelings out, but sometimes life just doesn’t let you do that.”

2. A nice one.

“It never hurts to compliment somebody on the quality of their work, their hobbies and whatever field is most important to their self esteem.

It always goes a long way.”

3. Be careful…

“Not everybody is your friend, be careful who you vent to.

Many people only want juicy gossip and don’t give a s**t about you or your problems.”

4. Truth.

“Just because someone is family, doesn’t mean they’re a good person.

It’s so wild how people call you a bad person for avoiding your family despite knowing nothing about their family.

“It doesn’t matter what they did you were in the wrong because they’re family” makes zero sense to me but other people look at me like I’m the lost one.”

5. Listen for once.

“If you don’t understand something someone is telling you, say so instead of pulling an “opinion” on the topic out of your a**.

There is no shame in not knowing or understanding something. Refusing to admit you don’t know and by extension refusing to learn something new because your ego is hurt is gravely misguided, however.”

6. For real.

“If someone gives you their phone to look at a picture, don’t swipe next to the other pictures.”

7. Listen to Styx.

“In the song Grand Illusion by Styx, there is a line; “Don’t be fooled by the radio, tv, or the magazine. Shows you photographs of how your life should be, compared to someone else’s fantasy.”

So I guess the idea that you might not feel your living your best life when you compare it with what your told is supposed to be your best life.”

8. Words to live by.

“Admit when you’ve done something wrong.

Trust your gut.

Nobody thinks as much about you as yourself.

Be kind. Don’t be an a**hole.

If you need help and it is available, ask for it, take it.

Just because you apologize doesn’t mean the other party has to forgive and forget.”

9. Walk away.

“Never let anyone take or disturb your peace.

Learn to walk away from toxic people!”

10. Yes!

“Surround yourself with people who will mention your name in a room full of opportunities.”

11. Just ignore it.

“If someone does something unintentionally embarrassing or awkward you pretend it didn’t happen and if they look at you you just smile and look away.”

12. Life 101.

“Life actually sucks a lot of the time. If you expect to be happy all the time, you will be sorely disappointed and lost.

Instead, work up a resilience to the hard times and take your time to enjoy the good times.”

13. Major eye roll.

“Don’t have strong opinions about something you know nothing about.

I really wish more people knew about this.”
