We all have had to deal with people we don’t particularly care for from time to time. Being able to handle people we aren’t particularly all that enthused about is how we can make social progress and improve social relations. But let me be clear about the meaning behind this post. I’m not talking about dealing with psychopaths who are seriously out for your worst interest. These are people we want to walk away from and freely chose not to interact among. These types of people you should not smile at, or engage with in anyway. Avoiding all contact, even a social gaze, is how we can eliminate rather than encourage social communication and interaction with an individual who WILL harm us. We these people WE MUST UNSIMLING AND TO THE POINT. However, there are times we have to interact with people who we may not particularly care for out of personal difficulties to find common ground; be it cultural differences, spiritual differences, gender related issues, etc. High profile people like, movie stars, producers, and politicians, musicians, sometimes have a lot of smiling to do in their professions. What do you do when you don’t feel like smiling? Below is an article that can help you gain a little information which may help improve social interaction and communication in your personal life as well as your career. But please remember, a smile can be veil one hides behind. You want your smile to be truly authentic, even when we may be hiding behind feelings of hurt and pain.

ON FINDING TRUTH. . . . “One of the most effective tools for cooperation was, and remains, speech. What form of early human was the first to attempt speech as we know it today - words and sentences expressing thoughts about the past and the future as well as communication about the present - we do not know. Our primate ancestors, of course, were capable of communicating with each other, as primates are today, with vocalizations, grunts, and wordless shouts meaning “Get out of my way,” or “Here comes something!” And until very recently it was believed that these creatures were unable to develop speech because of their limited brain power. More recently it has been suggested that a more likely explanation is their lack of the proper physical arrangements in the throat, mainly the tongue and the pharynx, to make the sounds necessary for speech.” ~Ashley Montagu, The Nature of Human Aggression View all posts by proclivitiesprinciplewisdom
