I subscribe to a word of the day newsletter and recently learned about the word, “Genial.” I wanted to share the definition and make the case as to why we should all be more… genial.
Genial means, to show sympathy and friendliness, and to be seen as a genius.
So why should we show sympathy to the people around us, even to those that don’t like us? Easy, because that person may not know how to be a better person. They might have so much drama in their life, that a break from that madness could really change them. I’m not saying it’ll work all the time, believe me I’ve tried, but at least you are doing something in an effort to make this world a better place.
