A friend has rudely insulted you...how do YOU bounce back?...

And in RL, too, please... And: When I say "bounce back" I mean not just an immediate reaction...but how do you also deal with the emotional remnants of a fiasco...? And not as much pertaining to online activities but in REAL LIFE where you might be confronted with your possible misdeeds. You can't block in RL...

I havent been insulted by a close friend in a very long time. If it did happen, i would have to think it was more what was going on with their life. Something that would cause them to lash out. We would cool down and talk about it.


Does that really work?

@Sukiesnow Does that really work?

Actually? 99% of the time, it does!

A bouncy castle would do the trick.

Being the introspective type, I would probably internalize it and think about it every now and then.. doing a little soul searching along the way.

My immediate response would be to remain stoic (and not show any outward signs of being hurt).

Brutally. It only happened once, back when I was a young major, by another major. It was like being stabbed in the back. I attacked back brutally and it never happened again. I kind of agree with the philosophy in the book "Ender's Game".

I was just insulted by a woman I've known a while online just yesterday and I did what I usually do. I just ignored it and moved on. Not the first time with this person but I'll be making sure it's the last time. I was nice and let her back on my Skype contacts but that was my mistake. Lesson learned.
I haven't been insulted in real life as long as I can remember.

You know, when I apologized publicly...I really don't think anyone cared, anyway.

I think my friend - in RL - is bi-polar anyway....I just made that diagnosis...yesterday....

People who are bi-polar are really hard to be around.

Stare into their soul

I can't remember the last time that happened..
What are we...10 years old?

Most likely...i'll just let that friend stew in their own ignorance..

If you can't talk without insulting, i don't hear you..

I've never been rudely insulted by a friend.

By a friend to be rudely insulted
Has never in my life resulted
From real interactions
Or real-life transactions,
No matter how deeply occulted.
