Bad Habits In Us Which Are Sometimes Hard To Spot And Combat

Posted under Uncategorized on Thursday 7 July 2011 at 11:10 am

We know a lot about bad habits, especially about bad habits that other people have. Those can include various bad eating habits, smoking and other unhealthy habits, bad behaviors like being always late, being impolite or show no respect to other people’s feelings, and many many more. Very often we notice and take offense at bad habits of the people around us, but don’t we have bad habits, too? bad habits“Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?”  the Bible teaches us. Below, there’s a list of quite common bad habits which many of us have but not many of us know and admit having those.

  • Looking for ways to pass the responsibility to other people. It is quite natural for people to avoid responsibility, but many of us tend to develop this bad habit to the most severe form of it, when they tend to fail admitting own fault and own responsibility even for certain personal things. It is necessary to always properly evaluate any situation and learn to admit own mistakes or own carelessness. People who do not blame others in their own problems always make an impression of strong individuals.
  • Imposing our own standards on other people and attempting to judge other people accordingly. Many of us fail to understand that the things which seem to be good or appropriate to us can be bad and improper to other people. Therefore, it’s essential to learn an easy idea: so many men, so many minds, and it is possible to understand the same situation under many different angles. Do not judge or criticize people who understand the same thing in a different way!
  • Getting drowned in unnecessary sarcasm and negative comments. Many people are trying to show that they are witty and cool by sharing their negative thoughts, making fun and even insulting the people around them, etc. This is a very improper way to show how awesome and great you are.
  • Failing to express our appreciation and gratitude. Most of us do not say “Thank you!” even for the things which do deserve appreciation. This is one of the most common bad habits which simply shows impoliteness of the person.
  • Failing to always listen to what other people say. It is one of the most common bad habits, which is very often linked to one other behavior pattern: talking and thinking only about own problems. Learn to listen to the others, ask questions about their problems or opinions, observe their reactions and behavior, and you’ll understand this world much better and will definitely win a reputation of a better person.
  • Trying to win in everything, no matter what. A lot of people among us are spending absolutely useless efforts for being the first and the best in all possible circumstances. Very often, this habit puts such people in quite stupid and even funny situations.
