But if they say any insulting things about your family, give them an immediate and solid response that makes them embarrassed for themselves.  

Here are the savage comebacks to shut that relative up for crossing their limits. 

When Relatives Comments On Your Family

1. “Are you talking about me, but that’s more related to your life than me.”

2. “The same as I can’t do anything about my family, you can’t about your immaturity. But, I’m still happy.”

3. “I know this isn’t your problem, this is a problem from your family.” 

4. “You shouldn’t be worried about them, they’re actually more mature than you’re.”

5. “We are a family and we love each other. keep your opinion with you.”

6. “My entire family is proud of me. So sad, you will never understand how it feels.” 

7. “I wish we could tell you how ignorant you are, but your parents can say it better.”  

8. “Sorry I didn’t hear you. No, no, please I don’t want to listen to your rubbish again.” 

9. “Thank you so much for taking care of my life so much more than even yours.”

10. “Oh, you’re here again. I thought you somehow found that no one wants to meet you.”

11. “Well, you’re not going to change, are you? Don’t worry we all hate you equally.”

12. “If you think that you are part of our family, let me tell you that you are not.”



Your relatives are parts of your family, but not your life. 

Whether they always tell you to grow up or make jokes about your family, they will never stop it until you don’t silence them with the ultimate responses they deserve. 

Your rude relatives need tighter comebacks to remind them who they’re dealing with. 

So far, you’ve been tolerating their behavior, because they’re elder and you respect that. 

But they seem to cross their limits and say anything about you or your family lately.

You can’t tolerate that, so you must give strong comebacks to make relatives change their rude behavior around you.
