If someone doesn’t respect your boundaries or doesn’t accept your rights, you have two choices: make sure they understand that you are the authority and that they can’t mess with you, or try to ignore the problem. In the latter case, you are likely to get ignored and end up getting your ass kicked.
The person that has the problem is not the one who should be using a code phrase for a particular problem. The problem is the one who is using the code phrase as an excuse to be abusive and rude. It is important to remember that boundaries should only be used for the purpose of communicating with the person in question, not because the person is disrespecting your property.
If you can’t make it to his house for whatever reason, just ignore his call. You don’t owe him anything. He might as well call you and ask you to move to a different house.
The problem is that people who don’t respect boundaries are not usually afraid to use them. For example, if you’re visiting a friend in your home and he tells you not to come in because it’s too loud, then you can ignore that. It’s not rude. If they call you a bad name for calling him a name, then that’s not rude. There’s nothing to be done about it. You just don’t say it, and it’s that simple.
I think we all have had people that seem to refuse to take no for an answer. I cant remember anything worse than someone calling me a name and that was the end of that. I dont know who the person was, but they never apologized.
This one is a little harder. When someone calls you a name, you should take a moment to just absorb it. If you refuse to do this, then the person is likely to escalate the situation. You can also send a quick email to the person apologizing and telling them what a jerk they are. This is a pretty common response when someone refuses to listen and just goes on and on and on.
You can also take a few moments to give the person a chance to speak. In this situation, you should take a moment to give the person a chance to apologize. Tell the person that you don’t think it’s their fault. You can also offer to buy them a drink and let them vent. This is another common response when someone refuses to listen.
This person had to be a jerk because their behavior had caused you to be frustrated, sad, and mad. The more you try to make the person feel better, the more they will feel like the problem is their own and not a problem with you.
The problem is that when you refuse to listen, you are the jerk. Someone who doesn’t respect boundaries can be a jerk, to a person, because they feel that they have no right to listen to what you have to say if you are right.
Just because someone feels that they have no right to listen does not mean that they are right. A person who is right does not have to listen to anything you have to say. In fact, they would only have to respect your right to listen if the person is a jerk and someone who is right doesnt feel like they have a right to listen.
