The USA is truly a land of immigrants,there are people from everywhere in world moving to the USA for a variety of reasons.

Some to escape violence in their former country.

Some for economics reasons

Some because the USA is a great place to live.

My point in this hub is that you can get along with most anyone if you try.

Here are a few tips to help you get along with others.

Respect the individual

For example - lets say that tattoos and piercings make you a little nervous.

Does that mean that people with tattoos are all bad?

No - they aren't, they simply have a different style than you.

I guarantee you if you we're drowning and the hand that reached out to save you had a big tattoo on the forearm you would gladly let them pull you to safety.

In fact I have met many people who look mean because of tattoos and piercings but are truly very nice people.

Don't Judge a person by the color of their skin.

The skin color of a person has nothing to do with who they are inside.

I have friends of many different races,some who speak English better than me,and would give you the shirt off their back without a thought.

I would like to say that if all else fails remember the Golden Rule,treat others the way you would like to be treated.

Don't take things personally.

Lets say for example someone said something that you don't agree with.

Stop and think about what they said and try to put yourself in their shoes,don't take it personally.

Don't argue, if you don't feel the same way as them you don't have to tell them.

Or if you want to let them know you can always just agree to disagree and let it go at that, this is a effective tip for lifelong friends,you both know and love each other and don't want to argue so just say that you don't agree and let it go, don't try to have a debate.

If the person you are dealing with has a mental problem a very effective tip is to just agree with everything they say, You don't have to really feel that way, you just agree to keep from arguing.

Some more random tips

If you want to be heard talk in a low voice, it does two things,it makes the other person really listen to you and it will help calm the situation down.

Don't get into a screaming match and never call names, I know I have said things when I was mad that I didn't really mean and the only time you shout get loud is if you need help.

Screaming and name calling just escalates the situation, so avoid doing this.

Don't be so opinionated - just sit back and listen. You can learn much about a person if you just sit back and let them vent,this is something that police use during interrogations.

Remember that these are proven tips to help you get along with others,study them and try them,they may not work every time but they will help, and that is the goal of the hub to help you get along with anyone.

Thanks for dropping by my hub, I would love to hear your feedback in the comment section below.

    Good advice for all. Essentially you are advocating following the Golden Rule and treating others as you would want to be treated. As for the tattoos, they are all the rage now so I doubt most would look at them askance but for the most conservative corporate offices. LOL. It amazes me how people have fall outs over political differences. Instead of using those differences as excuses to insult one another, we should carefully take into account those different viewpoints, keep an open mind as to the righteousness of different opinions and just mull on them. Politics doesn't always have to be a session of rabid debates. By keeping an open mind, I've learned to be a free thinker and more progressive. Thanks for publishing a great hub.
