What I try to do if someone calls me out on things:
- Ask myself if they have a point.
- If they do, I ask how I can change. Why am I trying so/too hard? What’s up?
- If they don’t, I ignore them.
Some people aren’t ready to open up, to accept empathy, and to consider that people want to help for no particular reason.
You can’t help those people yet, they need to get there on their own.
