-“Go ahead and keep talking, but just so you know I’m not listening.”
-“Your parents must be so proud.”
-“I’m in a hurry so can you just say, ‘I’m miserable so I want you to feel the same only worse.’ I’ll say ‘No can do.’ Then we can both move on.”
-“Are you going to waste my time like this every day?”
-“Sorry I forgot to pencil you in to waste my time. And, it looks like I am booked through college.”
-“Oh how cute, you thought I was a victim! Sorry to disappoint you.”
-I’m a good friend.
-I’m creative, or good at sports, or a great singer or musician, etc.
-My family loves and cares about me.
-I am an awesome baker.
“What do I do if no one listens to me or helps me out?”
Or even worse, “I told my teacher, the bully denied it and I got in trouble for lying!”
