Tips For Handling Judgmental Friends

5 Tips For Handling Judgmental Friends

I asked how you handle unsolicited judgments Tuesday, and you were full of advice, as usual. From avoiding judgmental people to addressing criticism head on, here are your five tips for handling the most self-righteous people in your life.

  • "The only solution I've found is to spend less time with them. I've actually broken plans with a judgmental friend by saying, 'I can't hang out with you tomorrow night. I'm going for coffee with a friend I haven't seen in way too long.'" — Girl Jen
  • "I just stopped hanging out with her as often and stopped telling her stuff. " — skigurl
  • "I think the best way is to not tell them much about your life, and to keep things to yourself." — totygoliguez
  • "I'm always pretty blunt when I encounter people that like to tell me how they would have done things." — postmodernsleaze
  • "I don't take intrusive, critical comments personally. In my opinion, those comments say more about the speaker than me, per se, so I do not internalize those comments. I keep my answers short and sweet. And I deflect. Deflect, deflect, deflect." — GlowingMoon
