After the age of 4 or 5 it's no longer cute to have diarrhea of the mouth! We giggle when the little ones say those outrageous things but at a certain point we expect everyone to learn to 'think before they speak'!
We've all been on the receiving end of loose lip attacks and probably walked away hurt…
Instead of internalizing those comments it might be interesting to ask yourself what's going on with your 'assailant'.
Is it an early learning defect - a mistake in their upbringing - or is there a more nefarious goal…
Might this person be jealous of you? Competitive?
Think about it. These below the belt hits are usually not unintentional.

WHAT ARE THEY GETTING?
When you get zapped, ask yourself what goal your assailant might have? They are NOT saying these things as a favor to you!

Scratching an itch
A power play
Getting even for an assumed act by you
Thinking that their beliefs are better than yours…
You get the drift. It is never really about helping you!
