I was verbally attacked for no reason in public at the planetarium in front of 20 families, including my own two children. I didn’t have my wedding on and a man was yelling at me, “I can see why your husband left you.“ It was one of the most embarrassing and mortifying moments of my life! I kept thinking for two weeks, “I should have said….“
After I was verbally attacked by a stranger I realized I just didn't know how to verbally defend myself. I also had one close relative who was always putting me and others down. I needed to find a solution to shut this person up and stand up for myself.
I read several books but the traditional methods didn't work and I became really frustrated.
I started a web site site to help people deal with verbal bullies because so many people had this problem. Running the web site, I Should Have Said...,I found out from our readers exactly what works when it came to shutting down verbal bullies.
Now I know the perfect things to say in any situation and how to say it.
