I share an experience I had this past Saturday where a family member, whom I love and respect, send some very hurtful words to me via text. I then go into exploring how to view and respond to this sort of verbal bullying.
Is there something to learn? Be humble enough to ask if there is some truth buried deep within the crap they sent your way. Missing that will cost you, not them.
Ask yourself the motif they had in sending the message. Is their motive love? Is it love, but they're too weak to deliver it in a loving way? Do they want to hurt you in order to cause you to change? What change are they looking for and is it best for you?
How to not let the words hurt. I honestly still feel pain from this event. I'm not in as much pain as I would have been 10 years ago, but I still am dealing with it.
How should you craft a response?
I go through my response and tell you why I said what I did. It managed to stop the grenades without expressing a negative emotion, or hurting them back.
