Have you ever been in a conversation with someone and they've blasted a negative or mean comment? You may have even been so thrown off by the comment that you decide to let it go. If you answered yes, keep reading!
Clear and courteous communication is something society struggles with as a whole. When conversations are met with malicious comments toward you, don't let it go! You deserve to take up space too. Sometimes people don't recognize the way they are expressing things to you, and if it's hurting you, it needs to be addressed.
Here are a few ways you can respond...
1."That sounds loaded. Is there something deeper we need to discuss?"
2."I want to make sure I'm responding appropriately. Can you clarify what you meant?"
3."Ouch, that comment hurt."
These responses create space for both parties to be heard and for poor communication to be corrected.
What's another response you've used when a malicious comment is made toward you?
