Have you ever had a friend or a boyfriend keep bringing up your past or mistakes that you made years ago? Most of us have embarrassing moments or chapters of our lives that we’re not particularly proud of. Maybe it is that time you danced on a table in a nightclub or made a complete fool of yourself in high school.

The last thing we need is someone publicly broadcasting or going on about our worst possible moments. After all, you are not your past, everyone is constantly changing and evolving as a person. You are probably not the same person you were five years ago.

You can’t help but wonder what is someone’s motivation for continually mentioning your past? Sometimes it’s best to ignore what someone said and other times people can be so continually disrespectful you have to call the person out on their behaviour.

Here are some things you can have ready on the tip of your tongue, next time they bring up negative or embarrassing stories about you from long ago.

What to say to a blamer

Great comebacks for people who blame others for their problems

No matter what the circumstances are, there are always people who blame others whenever anything doesn’t go their way. Blamers are incapable of accepting responsibility for their actions or for being part of the problem. The only thing that they are concerned about is condemning someone else and pointing out what they did wrong.

Blamers truly believe that they have never done anything wrong. They see themselves as the victim in the situation, no matter what the reality is, and it is always someone else’s fault. The problem with blaming things outside of yourself is that things can never get better in your life because you need someone else to change before your situation can improve.

Jasmine blamed her parents for her weight problems. As a child, they let her eat rubbish food. At 29, Jasmine was in control of the food she shoved into her mouth, but she still blamed her parents for her eating problem. She couldn’t solve the problem or shed the 50 pounds she needed to lose.

Jasmine needed to be accountable for her actions and eat less. Blaming her parents would never lead to actual weight loss.

If you get tired of the blaming behavior, here are some clever comebacks you can say to get your message across loud and clear.

What to say to a judgmental person

Great comebacks for judgemental people

We’ve all met them — judgmental people who think they’re always right about everything and everyone else is wrong. To arrogant people like this, anything anybody does is never right or quite good enough.

Judgmental people be exhausting to be around, spreading their doubt and fear and criticizing others and their dreams. After spending time with a judgmental person, you leave, questioning your own life choices and direction.

Listening to judgmental people can be detrimental to your future

Don’t listen when a limited person projects their opinion about your life. In 1919, Walt Disney was fired from the Kansas City Star because his editor said he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” If Walt had listened to the editor who fired him, the world wouldn’t have Mickey Mouse or Disney World.

It may seem like a judgmental person is making a judgment about you, but it really is a projection of their own reality and their ability, which has absolutely nothing to do with you.

If you ever get tired of the judgmental comments, you can holler some of these snappy comebacks right back at them.

  3. You don’t like me? That’s a shame. I’ll pencil in some time to cry about it later . Right now, I’m busy enjoying my life.
  4. Before you judge my life, I suggest you take a good look at your own life.
  5. Before you judge me, make sure you’re perfect.

Top ten comebacks for unsolicited advice

op ten comebacks for unsolicited advice. Check out our top ten comebacks when someone starts giving you unsolicited advice

Some people think that they have been put on earth to give others unsolicited advice. They are unaware that unsolicited advice can come across as arrogant and annoying. When someone is constantly giving you unsolicited advice, feels as if you are being criticized.

When taking advice from somebody, you always want to hear from someone who is more successful than you are. It is funny how people who have bratty children offer parenting advice. It makes you feel like saying, “Maybe you should work on yourself first before giving advice to me.”

When Freya told friends that she planned to move to the Middle East, they couldn’t see the amazing opportunity. Friends told her that she would be kidnapped, and if she married, she would never see her children again. Everyone shared their reason why it would be too dangerous to move to the Middle East, and they shared other small-minded opinions about a region of the world that they knew nothing about.

Freya did accept the job, and she moved to Dubai and had the experience of a lifetime. She worked with interesting people from all over the world and had a lifestyle she could have only dreamed of. It was a good thing she didn’t listen to the meddling advice from friends who had never been outside of the UK.

Here are a few snappy comebacks that will let the meddler know that you don’t want to hear what they have to say in the future.

  4. I didn’t realize you were an expert of my life and how I should live it! Continue well I take notes.
  5. Don’t judge a situation you’ve never been in.
  6. Thanks but I’m an expert in my life.
  7. Have more than you show and speak less than you know.
  8. I must have Alzheimer’s because I don’t recall asking for your opinion.
