How Handle Someone Shouting at You in Anger: Best Ways to React and Stay Calm
Learn the best ways to react and stay calm when confronted with someone shouting at you in anger. Handle the situation with composure and find effective strategies for maintaining your peace of mind.
Just follow these steps:
Whenever someone is shouting at you, don’t reply or do not argue for anything.
Just listen to what they are saying, and instead of getting angry try to find out their intention.
Just keep quiet and do not react.
Let them say whatever they want to.
Let them finish.
And then go away if they realize that what they did was wrong, then for sure they will come, and apologies to you.
If they think what they did was right, then there is no point in giving any justification.
One more thing that you can do is that as they finish shouting, you can ask them whether they are done, if the answer is yes, then ask and clear the points that you want to sort out.
But do not reply in a heated moment or when they are angry as it can make the situation worse so, it is better to listen quietly.
