This question regards the POWER OF WORDS: If someone snaps at you, can you get over it immediately?


Example of a Scenario; If someone close to you is not feeling well, and you sugggest he/she call a doctor,and they snap, 'you drive me crazy when you do this!' Then the person immediately apologizes and says,'I am sorry you do not drive me crazy...sorry I said that...' In your opinion, did the person really mean it, since the words flew out of their mouth so rapidly? I am writing a book which includes human emotion and reactions, and I would like to use this topic as an example.

    Lisa HW THANK YOU! I've been told, 'EVERYBODY' snaps at people and I disagree because I do not snap at people either...even when very ill in the hospital last year. I don't believe for one minute that everyone does it. I needed to read this!

    Dashingscorpio thank you so much for your valuable insight! You are correct with your suggestion to no longer offer advice...and that the longer you know someone the easier it becomes to predict how they will react. Excellent advice, so appreciated
