Alan’s Thought For Today
Never run from a verbal bully. They are all insecure, trying to reduce you to their level. Confront them and the balloon will puncture, venting all that hot air.
Ideal for a passive-aggressive: “Why would you say such a hurtful thing? What’s missing in your life that you feel the need to be so negative?” Remaining passive simply enables a bully, and turning the other cheek merely gets you slapped a second time. Fight back.
