    That I can be wrong and that I should be able to accept that I can be wrong, but also the opposite is true:
    Even if I (think I) am right, I should be able to accept that the other side does not think alike or share the same opinion.
    Also that to improve yourself you need to be able to find someone who is like you (aka has the same flaws) because it's easier to see flaws someone else has than to see your own flaws.
    I had quite some discussions with different people (starting with my parents, close family, friends but also with completely strangers) and it made me realize the above.
    My parents always told me I resembled my uncles because of my stubbornness - which they disliked. I had no clue until recently when we talked about different topics - which I'm not going to tell you because I mostly forgot xD.

    I didn't believe that someone could trump my stubbornness but my uncles stubbornness is a thousand times worse. I thought I couldn't leave a topic/discussion but I did several times when I realized the opposite side would never stop. It's weird to be honest because I never realized that I could take a discussion too far until that moment. He just wouldn't let it go and he became more and more angry (like seriously I got scared at one point), at the same time I didn't want to quit because I had pretty strong arguments (in my opinion).
    It was funny too because at the same time my parents tried to hush me and told me to stop.

    And it is true that seeing your own flaws is not an easy thing. Hence my suggestion of finding someone you think has that 'flaw'/negative side too.
    It really did open my eyes and I hope to improve that aspect/characteristic of mine.

    At this specific moment, the best life advice that keeps ringing in my heart is "to be humble" am saying this because of the life stage that am passing through right now. I've been kind of jobless for a while now, i have a degree and two diplomas and still getting a chance to be employed has been a far light at the end of the tunnel that i never seem to reach to.

    Though i've been able to work on my career, in other people's projects with a few days doing this and a few weeks doing something else, i've never had a concrete salary to pay my bills or even my rent, so its been a struggle, so i had to be humble, and began looking for a job that was below my qualifications, and luckily, just a few days ago, a friend of mine has asked me to go and help him work at a gas station, filling up cars and writing receipts, i became humble and i've accepted the offer.

    But in my mind am like "why am I getting a job this low ? Am I too desperate ? I've I gone to school and studied this hard just to get a job filling up other people's cars with petrol and diesel ? My friends who we went to school together, most of them have the right jobs, why is this happening ?"

    Then in my silence and contemplating i remember the advice of being humble and i lower my rank and do what needs to be done to stand again, and being hopeful that God will rise me up to work on my career one day.

    I heard an advice, that I considered the best, a long while ago, when I was a student. One of sociology professors kept on repeating “What is normal? Never use this word as a reason to defend your opinion". At first it was hard to understand what it meant, but finally I managed to get the point.
    And here is what I think about that advice (since I was a student and till now): you can’t judge anything on anyone based on your opinion; normal is an abstract definition and if you think that you know the one normal way in which things and opinions should work, it doesn’t mean you’re right, moreover it doesn’t allow you to claim that someone is wrong. Because who knows what is normal and what is not.

    An online organization needs better that live chat agents can handle customers accurately. It is one of the finest ways by which goodwill can be increased correctly. Live chat is a tool that can work effectively for all the organizations. That is why it is vital to look for reliable agents that know different ways by which they can look after customers appropriately.

    Certain things to be kept in mind before appointing live chat service provider-

    • All the agents must know different ways by which they can handle chats in a right manner. It is their prime duty to be patient with the budding customers and listen to their problems properly.

    Customer care outsourcing is preferred by n numbers of customers so agent should work round the clock. They should feel free to offer their services all the time.

    Website chat service agent should try to provide accurate information to their customers so that they can build a strong bond with them.

    • They should have proper command over language and must keep in mind that it is their duty to solve various problems and queries without taking much time.

    Live Chat Services could be much better if agents perform their duty sincerely. They must keep in mind that they are representing the organization over chat. Moreover, they should try to manage various chats at a time, so as to get in touch with n numbers of customers at a time.
