This is awesome!
"I love you, and I assure you that I will miss you and cry at your funeral."
Strangely, most people reply to this with "Thanks!" It sinks in later!
Love that one!
+1 absolutely :)
Hmm... could this, would this ever work?
"I heard the best athletes eat this way and I'm working on being an athlete too."
I don't have much experience with extreme criticism aside from occasional friendly banter. But this week I decided to fully transition into LFRV from vegetarianism. I'm a bit anxious to hear everyone's "health advice," but I'll probably stick to playing dumb. Just until I'm not so shaky.. like say "I've been Dying to try this amazing new lifestyle. It's So simple and tasty! After a while I'll let you know how I'm doing."
I learnt to keep silence and mind my business 'cause is the most peaceful approach, but if they get disrespectful or obnoxious I strike back with Einstein's famous quote "Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds" and left it at that. =D
Ps; I just read a good one on Facebook too that said Before you criticize, walk a mile in my shoes.
