People will provoke you and verbally attack you. When you react to their abuse and defend yourself, they'll turn either rageful or play the victim in front of others to make you look bad. They are con artist who are spiteful and revengeful.
A response to the Mandy Hale quote circulating. NO, women should not shut up deal. Strong women do not stand there take it. Strong women make things happen, stop unnecessary crap from happening and draw a line. They do not get walked on.
The truth is people who respect themselves will always treat others with respect. I'm giving you a chance to show me who you really are. Decent people will never take advantage of another just because they can.
