I come to Richmond in New Zealand a few times a year. Here is my man’s hometown and his parents live here.
Although we stay at their house when we come here, I was always nervous and my tense atmosphere affected everybody.
But at this time, obviously the atmosphere is so different that my man is surprised. I don’t know the reason. I just changed one thing.
It’s to call their name.
“Good morning, (name)”
“Thank you, (name)”
“(name), shall we ~?” etc…
I feel it seems to have a psychological effect. Actually, when people call me my name, I have friendly feeling towards them.
If you have a person who you want to get along with, try this simple way!
