You're only human, so it's not the end of the world if you accidentally say something offensive.

However, you don't want to be disrespectful all of the time, especially to close friends and family members whom you love.

You need to watch your words in order to keep the peace.

Here are a few disrespectful phrases to stop using to be more likable:

1. Whatever

When someone asks you to do something or tells you their opinion, don't respond with "whatever." It makes it sound like you're annoyed and dying for the conversation to be over.

Even if that's the truth, you don't want to seem disrespectful when your friend is trying to tell you something important.

Remember that golden rule and treat them the way you'd want to be treated.

2. I Hate You

When you get mad at someone you care about, it's easy to spit out things that you don't mean.

However, telling someone that you hate them is pretty harsh.

You don't want to make anyone cry or ruin their day.3

When you're angry, feel free to speak your mind, but don't get carried away.

If you love someone, there's no reason to claim that you hate them.

Even if they know you don't mean it, it's still hurtful.

3. You Wouldn't Understand

If a friend is trying to give you advice or comfort you, don't tell them that they can't understand what you're going through.

Maybe they haven't been in the same exact situation, but they have been hurt before and know what it's like.

Telling them that they don't understand what you're going through is a way to distance yourself from them, which is dangerous when you need to heal.

4. No Offense

Whenever you feel the need to add "no offense" to the end of a sentence, you've said something offensive.

Instead of putting those words at the end of your speech, stop yourself from saying whatever rude thing you were planning on saying.

It'll make everyone happier.
