30 “Unwritten Rules Of Life” Everyone Should Be Aware Of

Specific rules we follow every day are not documented in books or authorized by law. They are not taught in schools or universities. There is no course you can partake in to learn them. These unwritten and unspoken rules are also known as “common sense.” Common sense is the knowledge that all humans have, yet, everyone has a varying degree of it. While some acquire this knowledge easily or early in life, others need to go through specific experiences to develop a good sense and judgment.

While some might think there is nothing wrong with blasting the music out loud on public transport, others would find it inappropriate and inconsiderate. And the latter are the ones with common sense. It’s being aware of your surroundings and respecting other people. Very often, common sense involves having good manners. Scroll down below for some of the unwritten rules of life people have shared.
