Word of the Day: Considerate

November 15, 2016


adj: showing concern for the rights and feelings of others

Being considerate is being polite and caring. People like it when you’re considerate of their feelings.img_2168

We could all probably be more considerate of others: this word means you’re thinking of other people — considering them — and then treating them decently and with respect. It’s considerate to say “please” and “thank you” to people. It’s considerate to excuse yourself, rather than walking out and slamming the door. Asking someone how they feel is usually considerate. A considerate person is kind and thoughtful — a good person to know.

How can you be considerate today?
