Why is being elegant important in life?
Elegance comes from being calm in your mind and confident in your body, and allows us to level-up our lives in so many different ways. Making the choice to start living an elegant lifestyle must come from your own motivations to grow as a person and become an embodiment of a life you believe in. An elegant attitude engages the power of refusal when it comes to things that are vulgar, distasteful, harmful or mean.
Is it true that if I want to be elegant, I can't express my feelings and opinions?
No! While some may consider elegance an old-fashioned notion from another time, I am in love with this further definition of elegance. I believe elegance is kind, compassionate and considerate of others — BUT elegance refuses to look the other way when injustice occurs. It refuses to remain silent when we need to speak out. We can express our feelings, opinions, we are just doing it in a more proper way.
Do I need etiquette in everyday life?
Yes. Etiquette helps us know how to treat others, makes people comfortable and at ease, it shows that we value and respect others. Etiquette promotes kindness, consideration, and humility. We need to know especially basic etiquette - table manners, shaking hands, what to do when we are introduced to someone (especially at work environment), etc.
What is the difference between etiquette and good manners?
On a power note, etiquette is the rule which applies to a particular situation whereas manners are more general guidelines that we follow. Manners are simply a self reflecting mirror which shows how beautiful you are inside and they don’t change occasionally. On the other side, etiquettes vary with a nation’s culture and one must learn how to be adaptable regarding this.
