Season 2/ Episode 28: When Is it Time to Speak up for Yourself?
In All Seriousness
Should You Tell Them to Kiss It?
In this week’s episode, Jill and Tony talked about tolerance levels and knowing when to speak up for yourself.
Tony discussed the times he’s had to tell people to kiss his ass. Jill does not use profanity, so she talked about what she’s said to defend herself.
Tony urged listeners to tell someone to kiss their behind, but only if that person deserves it. He said that person will likely not bother you anymore.
Jill advised listeners to not let things fester, but be prepared for what happens next.
They have other suggestions:
- Try talking things out calmly first. You never know what someone is going through to make them snap at others.
- Do not make everything a fight.
- Understand that you can change behaviors, but do not try to alter someone’s personality. It won’t work anyway.
