When should you intervene?
29 Comments on "Your Turn"
If and whenever an always defenseless child or animal is clearly being hurt in some way. I wouldn't physically intervene myself-too potentially risky physically and, I hate to say it, legally-but I would without hesitation call the police and get as much visual info about the abuser while waiting for them to arrive in case they ran.
What a mixture of hilarious and sad.
TVJunkie.Big hugs sweetie. One day you'll be with that perfect someone and wonder why this person hurt in the first place.
Intervention is a slippery slope, proceed with caution.
When smoking it doesn't get you high enough, you get a syringe and shoot intervene.
@th47 +1111111111111Still laughing. Thank you.
HeisenHugs to @Bottles. I am so sorry for your loss. Stay strong!!!
LOL @ All Lace! My mother used to say that – "Are either of you bleeding or on fire? Then go read a book."
Thanks to everyone – I know this is a great community and I appreciate all of the kind words and thoughts!
TV Junkie, sending healing thoughts your way. It WILL get easier, I promise.
I intervene when: there is bullying or cruelty of any sort. Child abuse. Spousal abuse. Unfairness. Not on my watch, baby!!!!!
Tv junkie- men have special ability to unplug one family and plug in new one. Michael landin did it, brad pitt did it. So thats not the guy u want anyway. Hug the kids and say wasnt it great we had dick( see what i did there? Lol) for as long as we did?
As soon as you are aware of the problem. I am speaking from personal experience and the untimely death of a sister.
When full creamy breasts with a smattering of freckles have been exposed.
Well he sounds like a piece of shit. It might not seem like it now, but it is probably better for you and the kids to not have someone like that in your life. He will probably do the same thing with this woman and her child.
Thanks so much for the kind words, Pip. I am really trying. It's particularly hard on my kids. He did more for them than their father ever does, and then just walked away to be with a new woman & her child. (They don't know that part.) Didn't even show emotion as he said goodbye!
Aww, I'm sorry, TV Junkie. Breakups suck. Especially when you aren't the one doing it. It happens to the best of us. Expect to feel like shit for a little bit. Don't focus on anything you could've done to save the relationship, the fact is he wanted this to happen, so it did. The sun will shine again for you. Allow yourself to mourn the relationship.
Hi, CDAN friends. I'm having a very hard time with this breakup – would someone please intervene for me? 😉
th47- Ha ha. I know everyone hates Nickelback, but I actually like them. I saw them in concert twice. The first time was by default – they were one of several bands in the lineup and I didn't go to see them. But the 2nd time was by choice and I enjoyed it.
Serious question or are we talking about, like, eating too much bacon? Because you can never eat too much bacon. Only an asshole would intervene on bacon consumption.
Same goes for Nutella.
when the going gets rough
When your friend starts typing his credit card number into the website selling the Nickelback tickets.
I used to tell my daughter when she was little to not interrupt unless there was water, fire or blood. In this case I would add pain too.
Is this about your terrible grammar, day-drinking, or massive bacon consumption, Enty? We've been trying to intervene for years.
When the flying monkeys start the attack.
I love a good intervention in July.
All the time. People love when you stick your nose in their business.
When you know the cops are on the way and the situation if getting out of control
when your intuition tells you to
but only after careful consideration
unless in emergency
When the photographers arrive.
