Courtesy has been called “The Prince of Virtues.” This gives an image of nobility, honour, grace, and purity.When we acknowledge these qualities within ourselves, we begin to find strength that we didn’t know we had.
“Courtesy is being polite and having good manners. When you speak and act courteously, you give others a feeling of being valued and respected. Greet people pleasantly. Bring courtesy home. Your family needs it most of all. Courtesy helps life to go smoothly.” (www.52virtues.com)
When we are trying to change our lives or improve our circumstances, courtesy can go a long way. When we act in a courteous way we are showing respect for ourselves as well as those to whom we are being courteous towards.
Whether we are aiming to overcome depression, anxiety, fears, or insecurities, showing courtesy to others will help us to feel positive towards ourselves and those we are coming into contact with.
When we feel positive, we attract more positivity into our lives.
