Words to Avoid: “You’re so petty.”

These words belittle the other person. If they were indeed being petty, then these words won’t help the situation.

If their reaction to something was larger than most people might have responded, maybe it triggered something in them. Again, these words won’t help.

Instead, don’t say anything. Or address their concern. No need to evaluate their character or intention.
