What to say when someone tries to make you feel guilty

How to respond when someone tries to make you feel guilty

People who engage in emotional blackmail know exactly which buttons to press to make you feel guilty. Basically, they are trying to control you so you will confirm, and do exactly as they please.

You normally think of a guilt trip as something that your mom does, trying to trick you into eating your vegetables or cleaning your room. My friend’s mom always says to him, “I incubated you in my womb for 9 months, doing X is the least you could do for me.”

Really, guilt trips are a form of psychological manipulation because the person knows your weaknesses and will do or say whatever it takes to get to you do what they want.

You could be direct and let the person know that you feel resentful of the way they are trying to control you, and their actions are just pushing you further away.

Next time someone tries to give you a guilt trip, use one of our clever comebacks and let them know that you’re onto them.

Top ten comebacks for put downs

Great comebacks when someone puts you down

When someone is putting you down in public and embarrassing you in front of others it is completely unacceptable. The bully’s intent is to make someone else feel inferior so they can feel powerful. Confident secure people who are happy with themselves don’t feel the need to belittle others.

You have a choice of who you spend time with, you don’t have to accept bad behaviour from rude and disrespectful people. Sure, some people have had tough lives it’s true, but you’re not a punching bag for someone who hasn’t dealt with their unresolved issues.

When someone puts you down, don’t blindly accept their criticism as the truth. Even when a boss or teacher criticizes you their judgment could be completely wrong. When Thomas Edison was in school a teacher told him that he wouldn’t be successful at school because he was “too stupid to learn anything.” When he started working, his first two bosses didn’t that think he was a productive worker and he was fired from his job. At first, he wasn’t a successful inventor, his 1001 attempt at figuring out the lightbulb was successful. Imagine if Thomas Edison had listened to all of that negative feedback, we could all still be sitting in the dark!

You have a right to verbally respond to the negative situation and let the person know that you don’t accept their framing. Let the person know that they need to back off using one of our comebacks below.

Put downs are such a big problem, I actually wrote two blog posts about this topic, this is this post contains the raunchier comebacks, if you are looking for a politer comebacks for put downs,  check out this post.

Top Ten Comebacks for Bullies

Check out our comebacks that SHUT BULLIES UP. | www.ishouldhavesaid.net

There is nothing worse than a bully; a bully is really a coward, who gangs up with others to torment people. Bullies pick innocent victims who have done nothing to deserve the harassment being directed towards them.

Sometimes the bully has a halo effect even though they are a real jerk and the teachers and the school think that they are a great kid. These are the hard ones to catch, like the captain of the football team who has the support of the school and the students.

If you are being bullied, please tell a trusted adult what is going on so they can get you some help. The person you talk to does not have to be your parent but someone who can help you figure out what to do.

You may feel like you are being left out or picked on at school, but it won’t be like this forever. Great things are ahead for you in the future.

In the meantime, may all the bad karma that bullies inflict on others come back and bite them in the ass.

Entrepreneur Elon Musk was Bullied Growing up

Some kids get bullied for being different, they are creative, smart and not afraid to have a point of view.

Steve Jurvetson – https://www.flickr.com/photos/jurvetson/18659265152/

Elon Musk was one of those kids, he was bullied horribly during his school days in South Africa.

Maye Musk said of her son “he was the youngest and smallest guy in his school” and that he was picked on all the time.

“It’s pretty rough in South Africa,” he says. “If you’re getting bullied, you still have to go to school. You just have to get up in the morning and go. He hated it so much.” -Elon’s brother, Kimbal Musk

If so, tell that kid the story of Elon Musk. Today, the world knows Musk as a wealthy, imaginative genius — the man who is making electric cars mainstream and putting rockets in space.

Musk survived the bullying with the support of his family, and having the belief he could do great things. The other thing that saved him was computers and creating businesses.

Today he is known as one of the founders of PayPal and the founder of Tesla.

Clever comebacks when someone stares at you

How to respond when people stare at you

We’ve all had the guy or girl who just doesn’t stop staring.  You can feel them staring at you, even if you are not looking directly at them. It has probably happened to you many times, and it can be very awkward, especially when they are checking you out and trying to make eye contact.

If the person is really hot, you may just want to take it as a compliment and enjoy the attention. If the person is not so hot, you might feel a little creeped out.

Next time some someone can’t stop staring at you, use a few snappy comebacks to let the person know they are giving you the creeps.

What to say when someone stares at your chest

What to say when people start at your boobs

If you were blessed to be born with decent sized breasts you will have been ogled by a guy or two in your time. Women are used to guys staring at them, but when they overtly stare at your chest it can be a little creepy.

If you are wearing low cut tops and clothes to emphasize your curves than maybe you like the attention. Ladies who have beautiful bodies shouldn’t have to cover them up to avoid pervy men.

Whether you enjoy the attention or not, these comebacks will let the guy know you caught him staring. Using a comeback will let the guy know that it is not OK to openly google your breasts like your body is an amusement park attraction.
