People say the darnedest things, don’t they? Maybe you, too, have blurted out an inappropriate, rude or nosy comment. (It’s likely everyone has.)
According to therapist Joyce Marter, LCPC, people make these kinds of remarks for a range of reasons. Some people simply don’t have a filter — especially when alcohol is involved. Some think they’re being helpful.
Others have poor boundaries. “Perhaps they are an open book with everyone they meet and expect others to be the same.”
Still others are passive-aggressive. “Perhaps they are envious of you or annoyed with you and expressing this by pushing your buttons.”
