Quotes For When Someone Shouts At You – How They Help?

Either shouting or being shouted at can be a difficult experience. It may temporarily relieve you of the anger or tension stored up in you but it will have consequences for later on. Shouting does not necessarily have to be you using bad words or insults but merely raising your voice in a manner that scares, intimidates or makes the other person uncomfortable.

Shouting can have a number of purposes. Firstly, it can be used to express how you feel; angry, sad, upset or disappointed or feelings someone can express effectively through shouting – some people shout even when they are happy! Also, shouting can be used to dodge another person’s questions that might expose you and your wrongdoings. The same technique can also be used to intimidate the other person or push them into doing something you need them to do.

Whatever the experience is, it can be stressful. If you are shouted out then you may be made to feel useless or scared and even demotivated – depending on the context. Also, if you are the one who is doing the shouting and swearing then maybe you need some inspiration to change or help you cope with the guilt feelings you will experience later on! In such situations, quotes can always help to make one feel better or be inspired to do better next time.

Shouting – Never Okay!

Shouting is never a healthy activity and only worsens situations people are in! Furthermore, shouting is not a good tool for parenting and can actually set an unhealthy example for kids in a number of ways. They may think that shouting is a way to avoid the real discussion and when you shout you don’t really have to focus on the logic. Why? Because when you speak loud enough the other person will eventually go quiet and the situation will be resolved!

Yelling them at the other person – especially if they are someone younger or junior to you or at your level is basically teaching them that it is acceptable to engage in this behaviour and they will do so when the time comes. It is possible your children may start talking back to you or shout at you when they get upset because that is how they have seen mom resolve her problems!

Although shouting may help us regulate our emotional side and allow us to let out some steam, it is no doubt considered wrong and this is the reason why such behaviour is not tolerated in the professional setting such as at a conference, during a class or a meeting at work. Even when it comes to the family sphere, this is an act that is looked down upon unless the family simply does not ‘care’. 

Regardless of whether or not shouting can help us as a society in the long term and whether it truly allows us to express ourselves in acceptable ways, it is something we prefer not to engage in because it sets a bad example in society.
