How are you so sure?
How sure are you that I am delusional? This is a good reply that you can give. This will help the person to rethink for him to be sure of the fact that you are delusional before even calling you delusional.
It will not make sense for you to call someone names without being sure of it. That is what this reply will help you fix. Ask the person how sure he is and you will await his response.
Don’t you think it’s too harsh?
When someone calls you delusional you would feel offended at first, especially if it comes from someone that knows nothing about you.
That is a harsh thing to say, however, ask the person who called you delusional to rethink if what is said is too harsh.
I am sure the person would rethink, then he would decide if he will say something like that to you or someone else next time.
If it were you, will you like it?
There is a popular saying that goes, do to others what you want them to do to you. That works anytime, anywhere.
This is a good reply because the person will put himself in your situation to see how exactly he will feel if someone called him delusional.
I am sure he will not feel good either. Once he becomes empathetic and puts himself in your shoes, he will see that he will not like to be called delusional, and this will push him to desist from calling people delusional.
What exactly do you mean?
Does he mean it literally that you are delusional or is he trying to be sarcastic?
Ask him what exactly he means by calling you delusional, that way he will explain himself better and you will also be able to understand him better.
When you understand what he means you will be able to know what to do next or even the best way to reply.
You can say whatever you please
This is a reply that shows that you do not care about what the person says to you. Most times, this happens because you are used to a lot of people saying nasty things to you.
It has gotten to a level where you do not care anymore, whatever people say does not get to you that much.
This shows you are more confident in yourself and you can perform at your best without bothering too much about what other people have to say.
You are mistaken, I am not delusional
This is a reply that shows you truly know who you are and you are not going to take it likely with anybody who says untrue things about you.
Once you make it known to the person that he is mistaken, he will understand that you truly know who you are and you are confident about it.
Some other people who are not confident in themselves will easily flinch when someone says they are delusional.
Once someone calls you delusional when you know you are not, simply tell the person straight up that the person is mistaken.
Do you think so?
With a reply like this, you already paint a picture that you do not care what people think of you.
If the person tells you that you are delusional, ask him if that is actually what he thinks of you.
Because you do not even care too much about what people think of you, you will not bother too much if he tells you that you are delusional.
It depends on how well you know me
Some people are too quick to judge. The moment they come across you, once they notice something about you they begin to judge you in that instant.
If someone calls you delusional just because he noticed something about you even without knowing you well, just reply by telling him that it depends on how well he knows you.
This reply will send a message to him that he should have waited to know you before calling you delusional. The moment you reply in this manner he will think twice.
You are entitled to your own opinion
When someone calls you delusional and you tell the person that he is entitled to his own opinion, it means you do not bother too much about the opinions of others.
You are a strong believer that everybody is entitled to their own opinion and you are in no way going to control their opinions of you.
I choose to ignore you because I know I am not delusional
When you are confident of who you are you can choose who to reply to and who to ignore.
Since you know full well that you are not delusional, the next time someone calls you delusional, reply to the person by saying that you are not delusional and you are going to ignore him.
When the person understands that you ignore things you do not care about, he will stop calling you delusional.
Is that how low you think of me?
For someone to think that you are delusional, it’s belittling. Especially if you are a high-profile person.
As a high-profile person, you should use this reply. Ask the person if that is how low he thinks of you.
This will make the person rethink and probably do a background check on you to see who you are.
I guess you just learned the new word
Some people tend to flex any word they just learn. It could be that the person does not understand what being delusional is, he probably just learned the word newly and he felt he could use it on you.
Ask him in your reply, if he confirms that does not know the real meaning and just wants to use it to flex, he may be calling you delusional for the wrong reason.
You have a wrong impression of me
This reply shows you are confident of how you are yourself and at this point, you do not care what other people think of you.
If the person calls you delusional, it means that is what the person thinks of you. Let that person know that he is mistaken because you know full well that you are not delusional.
Are you for real?
This reply shows you are shocked by the person’s reply. You are asking if the person is for real or if he is just joking about it.
From this reply, the person can tell that you are disappointed in him for making such remarks about you.
Next time, he will think of the repercussions of calling you delusional before he even goes ahead to call you delusional.
Once he knows that you will be disappointed in him, he will desist from making such statements about you.
Try to mind your business
This is a direct reply that shows you are not pleased with him for making such statements.
It may sound a bit harsh, but for him to make such a statement shows that he has no regard for you and you are suggesting to him to mind his business.
When gets the message he will not make such a statement next time, he will mind his business instead of poking his nose in someone else’s business.
He may not like how you came at him, but it is a good way to show him that you are not happy about him calling you delusional.
I suggest you do something more meaningful
In this reply, you are advising him to be more productive with his time. If he chooses to do something better with his time, he will not think of calling you delusional because he will be so busy to even think of that.
When you advise him to do something better with his time, he will rethink. If he is a sensible person, he will rather do something better with his time than focus on calling you delusional.
You are capping
When you say someone is capping, it means what he is saying is not true if it does not hold water.
The moment you tell him directly that he is capping, he would not like to be further embarrassed, he will have to keep mute.
The more he talks the more he will get embarrassed because you told him point-blank that he is capping.
He may find this insulting, but he started it when he told you that you are delusional.
You hardly say things that will benefit me since I knew you
This is one way of sending a message to him that he has not been beneficial since you knew him.
You are indirectly telling him to be someone that adds value to people instead of just bringing the person down by calling them derogatory names.
I hope your opinion of me will change soon
When someone meets you and the person knows nothing about you, he will have an opinion about you.
The opinion the person has about you may be most likely wrong because the person does not know you at all.
When the person calls you delusional, reply by telling him that his opinion of you will change soon.
When you give this reply he will begin to expect more from you. Because you promised him that his opinion of you will change soon.
You are the least expected person I thought would say this
It means of all the people you know, you never expected the person to say much about you.
It is possible you held the person in high esteem, but the moment the person called you delusional, you became disappointed.
You can make use of this reply as it will pass your message accordingly and you will make the person have a rethink on why he made such a statement.
It is not advisable to judge someone you just got to know. Or even someone you barely know. Do not call someone delusional if you do not know too much about the person.
What you should do instead is to seek to know the person first. However, if someone called you delusional, the replies I gave in this article will help you to not run out of what to say.
