    Please answer!:)

    #729974

    I’m first answering joke-wise then seriously

    1. Help the bully (I don’t know, never been in the situation)

    2. Say how I’m right (Me make a mistake) (Really it depends on the mistake, If I truly feel it’s a mistake I’ll admit it)

    3. Put in my earplugs (seriously)

    4. whistle (look for the guy I hit) (happened before)

    5. Yell how he’s wrong (happened tonight)

    well then…

    1.If it’s a situation where my getting involved will help, then i try to stop it. If not, i try to go over to the one being bullied afterwards and comfort her. And when applicable i try to speak to the bully or go to someone who can influence her… But there are those times when I’m too chicken ๐Ÿ™ i’m working on it

    2. turn bright red! i tend to put off admitting it until i have to… and i have to force the words out

    3. freak, say a perek of tehillim, adn then either check it out or try to figure out what it is without getting out of bed (but thats more cuz i’m too lazy than being scared) there is one exception to this-if the noise is coming from the basement and i’m down there alone at 1 am, i say my perek as i’m runnign up the stairs (but then i usually get ahold of myself and go back!)

    4. i don’t drive yet, so no worries there!

    5. tell them as tactfully as possible, make it sound like the problem is with me, and things like that ๐Ÿ™‚

    k- 1. i prob would stick up for the victim just because that is more my personality. you know, go against the masses in this case is most of the time the bully’s group.

    2- say “oh man! i really made a bad one” and i would laugh at myself. does NOT happen often though i can guarantee that… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    3-ach, probably the steam! go back to sleep!

    4-leave my number with an apology.

    5- i get really un- courageous when it comes to this, i know its not good, but i most of the time pretend i din not hear it in the first place!!. Ecslipse, how did i score?!?!

    1. Depends what kind of bullying. If it’s physical bullying, I would call someone stronger than me to come help. If it’s verbal, I would tell the bully off.

    2. I would make a joke and a grand announcement about it. Laughing makes it less embarrassing.

    3. Wake up my husband.

    4. I don’t drive.

    5. Funny you asked this, because my husband and I are in a sticky situation with someone right now and we have to tell him the truth. We came up with a diplomatic way of phrasing it to sound like his rejection is because of our unique circumstance and now because of him. You might argue that it’s more courageous to tell him the truth, but it’s not a mitzvah to make someone feel bad.

    chayav,the alcohol is not making you as happy as you say.

    Unhappy people put others down.

    Happy people are too busy being kind.

    Would you like me to stop posting,chayav?

    Because If you are gonna “follow me around”,I should.

    When you have to reject a person/idea,HOW DO YOU DO IT? “

    Rejecting an idea is very easy. You can say to the person, “That’s a very interesting idea/perspective/way of looking at things. Thank you for mentioning it. I will certainly give it some thought.” Then you do what you want.

    1. I don’t really see people get bullied but I would probably stand up for the kid being bullied.

    2. I would just say I made a mistake, you’re right, I’m wrong. But not make it that serious.

    3. Freak out (I never used to but something really scary happened and since then…) and say some Tehilim (it physically calms you down, trust me I have experience ๐Ÿ™ ) say its probably the wind but not be able to fall asleep.

    4. never happened yet (don’t drive) but I’d probably leave a note with my number.

    5. Just gradually lose touch with the person. An idea, be like oh, I’ll think about it.

    btw how does this test your courage??
