Here I am, talking about rudeness again.

 

If you speak tons of languages and have managed to find a way to be as rude as possible when speaking each one of them, what is the point? 

Wouldn't it be better just to choose silence and spare as all? 

How can we survive as a species if we keep being mean to each other?

I keep telling that to myself in order to turn myself into what I consider a respectful person.

Well written and thoughtful and I agree with your sentiments! Almost perfect. The only thing I would change is the phrase "spare as all". It should be "spare us all". Well done and keep writing!

Thank you, Ros. I've been thinking a lot about this topic lately. I didn't noticed that I've written "as" instead of "us".

Excellent piece of writing Natali. As Ros pointed out it is virtually perfect, apart from that one minor mistake.

Personally I would change Wouldn't it be better just to choose silence to Wouldn't it be better just to choose to be silent / choose to remain silent.   However, nothing is wrong with writing it the way you did. Just a matter of opinion.

I'm really looking forward to your next piece of writing smiley

Hi Natali!

This is great! The only thing is the us/as:

spare as all - spare US all

Apart from that, everything looks great! 

Well done, keep going! :D

Hi! Brilliant piece of writing!

As well as the changes mentioned in the above comments, I would have just changed the phrase 'I keep telling that to myself' to 'I keep telling myself that.' This is a common phrase in the English language. Otherwise, it's great.

Thanks, Becky :)

 Well done, Natali! Fabulous piece of writing! Only minor corrections are needed.

If you speak tons of languages and have managed to find a way to be as rude as possible when speaking each one of them, what is the point? 

Wouldn't it be better just to choose to remain silent and spare us all? 

How can we survive as a species if we keep being mean to each other?

I keep telling that to myself in order to turn myself into who I consider a respectful person.

 

Also, let me tell you what I think. Rudeness has always existed in history (and most probably before that as well). I believe that is a part of who we are as human beings. There are times when we hate each other. Hate is as genuine a feeling as other feelings like happiness and being rude is a way to show that feeling. However, we should try to minimize it and try to get back to love and happiness as soon as possible. The addressee should also understand this and act appropriately. If they are guilty, they should apologize, and if not, they should explain it. I know that it sounds too idealistic but that is what psychology tells us. I hope for everlasting happiness in all our lives.

Best of luck to you!
