How would you react to insults
Any kind of insult! What would you say to the other person?
Usually ignore them though sometimes I give them as good as they give me, not really worth it though as I prefer to live in harmony.
Respond with a side smile that will leave them crazy and guessing if they made a mistake
But inwardly correct yourself if you are to blame.
There is nothing to say. The insult lives in their mind, it has nothing to do with me, or what I am going to do next. Each person lives among their own thoughts and feeling. So in that way each person is already free of everybody. Like the Buddha once said, "I am free to take it, or not take it, and I don't take it. Now what will you do with it?" The wise ones know who they are and they don't receive the negativity of others. They leave it with them.
Before, I used to just take insults and just smile at the person who insults me but now I have the confidence to stick up for myself and give it back to them. I don't think we should take insults from anyone, no need for it. And I don't think we should give it either. We want to live in a civilised world.
"They hate us 'cause they ain't us". On a more serious note, it depends on my mood, I prefer to just ignore it most of the time but sometimes I might retort back.
I just try to be super nice, that usually stops them from being so insulting, I don't buy into their state of mind, I'm happy regardless and proud to let it show!
I would explain politely that I thought the remark wasn't kind, or it was insulting, or maybe rude. If confrontation continues or there is really bad language then I would just walk away. Can't be doing with people who hurl insults.
If it's a friend, though, then I'd try to work it out. However, my friends tend not to be that sort of person. Some people have an anger problem and just need to be treated with calmness.
