Situations in which you want to repel aggressors, not uncommon. In this case, you must be able to respond to insults, to be able to defend themselves, whatever happens.
If you find yourself in the situation when a stranger began insulting you, in every possible way to find fault, do not be nervous. There will be better simply not to notice the rude, ignore all of his statements. Pretend that this subject is next to you simply doesn’t exist, and that his opinion of you means nothing. This tactic is the most preferred and effective, it will put you in a more advantageous position than him.
However, if a person you know, the case is somewhat complicated. Most likely, the abuser is just trying to boost self-esteem at the expense of your humiliation. Don’t give him that chance. You should not joke in such a situation, otherwise you may find it stupid, and to answer rudeness on rudeness especially do not need. Optimal solution will be a caustic, scathing and sarcastic attack on attacked you as a person. He will make it to hide your mouth shut and do not disturb idle talk.
The main thing to remember is do not lose your temper, don’t lose your temper because this will only provoke more of the enemy and give him what is called, all cards in your hand. Be always correct (in any situation), not to stoop to the level of the one who offended you.
