Have you ever been around a Grinch? If you have, you know who I’m talking about. Someone who takes pleasure in spoiling the pleasure of others.

Is it possible to de-grinch a Grinch? Dr. Seuss thought so. And the citizens of Who-ville are proof that it can be done. But how?

How can those of us who are not as cute as Little Cindy Lou Who de-grinch the grinchiest of Grinches? I dare not attempt to wordsmith verse like the beloved G.O.A.T. Dr. Seuss. But I will offer my thoughts in ACRONYM.

G-R-I-N-C-H: 6 steps to de-grinch the grinchiest of Grinches.

STEP 2

RESPECT

Be polite to the grinches you encounter without expectation of reciprocation. Difficult? It can be! The temptation is to return in kind especially when someone is unkind. However, with a mindset of respect for others, your actions will be directed in a positive direction. Let the following quote sink in.

Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners.
~Laurence Sterne

Daily Doable: As much as it depends on you, show respect and be polite to the Grinches you encounter? A simple “Thank You,” is an excellent start. And there’s a strong possibility your respectful manners could rub off on the grinchiest of Grinches.
