I know exactly how horrible it feels when you have someone pick on you but you don't know how to stand up for yourself.
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 ring 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 I realized I just didn't know how to stand up for myself.
I grew up as the only child of a narcissistic single parent who continually made cruel and humiliating comments towards me publicly.
I needed to find a solution to shut this person up when she tried to shame and embarrass me. I had to learn what to say and how to say it respectfully, to respond in a way that worked for me.
