Outside of work
if I go to jail, I wont have a job. I must keep clean from any violent crimes. I enter into schools for work.
I'm saying outside of work would you let someone talk bad to you?
if I can ignore them I will. if they are that obnoxious as you say then its going to be ugly if I cant leave . I prefer to simply avoid that. we had a shooting over road rage. act a fool and you respond, a gun might be drawn and fired these days. its a possibility and over what? my honor? if its just that and nothing more then its going to be ignored. my wife had some road rage and had the cops called on her. its not worth that. I told her, what if the lady called your bluff and pulled out a gun and fired thinking you were a threat and weren't. you are dead and she is facing jail or not. over a darn parking spot?
Being i am 71 years old i would most likely walk away ...
Any reason i might think you .. think ..feel .. your mom disrespected you on the street?
No she didn't I was just trying to make a scenario for you.
I'm conflict avoidant. If some random chick or dude is yelling at me I'm looking for the fastest way out of there. Tbh I would likely be fearing for my general safety in that kind of situation, if they're crazy enough to yell mean stuff at me while I'm walking they could be crazy enough to try to assault or kill me. If I must engage them, I'm still looking for an out, not to prove them wrong.
first few years you were on earth you were 100% depending on your parents to clothe and feed you; that was done through their love for you.
It's easy to talk smart before being faced with a situation. I would hope that I would do the right thing and I would hope that you too would do the right thing. The right thing of course would be God's definition.
Verbally harassing by who's definition? I have shared this on this site in the past but one of the struggles I have had most of my adult life is people responding to me differently than I expect they should. I don't know if it's my facial expressions, my body language, or what but too many times to count I have been viewed as being angry with people when I am not angry in the slightest. Someone once told me that I have an abrasive personality and that may explain why I come off the way I do.
Some people are more sensitive than others and are not comfortable receiving criticism in any form, even constructive. I wonder what the result would be from a poll of teenagers to see how many feel their parents don't understand them. I'm betting it would lean heavily toward the majority.
So you're telling me you wouldn't stand up for yourself?
True, but my point is that God is the reason I exist.
But from Adam 'til now God has worked with and through His Created in this case your Mom and Dad.
I agree God used my parents to birth me but if he wanted to he could make babies out of thin air.
But He used your parents and then teaches us t0 obey them, even if they are wrong. (Eph 6:1)
Just consider, male children obeyed their mom and dad until they were thirty, you have it made.
nothing like youngins knowing more than the parents.
Dude what are you even talking about?
Nothing like parents thinking they know everything.
