Default Re: How to stop giving nasty strangers mental real estate?

Well, it was hard on me to be laughed at so much when I was younger but I have gotten to the point I just don't care anymore whether someone does or not. I have shut down and I can get nasty back too. They can just go and crawl in their little cubbyhole where they belong.

Thanks, I think you meant this advice for OP though?

Btw I do use the f word in some situations, but with strangers in the street I usually don't do it, I usually just ignore strangers that try to f*** around. I think usually that's best really. Though there was this guy once who tried to grab my arm, because he thought I was intentionally not paying attention to whatever he was saying to me (I just didn't hear them though). That was because he wanted to get help for some old woman but I didn't know that's what he wanted. I just saw him grabbing my arm and treating me like a piece of sh** totally unwarranted. I hit the guy in the end.

Anyway, for the obvious reasons I don't usually recommend getting into fights with strangers. But for some reason this incident came up recently in memory for me. It was years ago.
