Put yourself in the other person’s shoes
This rule is both simple and complex. When you are not sure whether a word is an insult or not, whether it affects a person’s feelings, try to put yourself in the place of the person you are addressing, talking or writing about. Would you like to be addressed that way? Would you mind being referred to in those terms? Remember, people should always come first.
