8) Trust Your Gut
If you feel the situation is getting so overheated, and your safety may be at stake, chances are it is. Don’t stay in a negative situation that could potentially turn violent. Just walk away or get yourself out of there any way you can safely do so. Some difficult people are bullies. Deep down they are cowards, but outwardly they are control freaks. If your instinct is telling you the situation is getting worse, then just go. Do so before the opportunity is lost, and you find yourself a victim of violence. Once something like that occurs, it can’t be undone. No apology can make up for physically harming or abusing another person. If you’ve gotten to the point where you are fearing for your safety, the best course of action is to completely remove yourself. If you can’t do it alone, ask for help from someone you trust.
