Let me start with my case as I had it. There was a time that some couple of guys I don't know very well are just trying to humiliate people especially guys that are cool-headed. People that are their primary target are people that rarely fight and just too cool. So, I noticed this character of theirs when I saw and heard two of their acts discussing after they have done such to me. The day they confronted me. I was kind of afraid though not much because I was thinking these guys might be under the influence of alcohol and Indian hemp. I guess right. One was under the influence of both. They wanted me to act like them. To mixed up and be with them. I was raised by Muslim parents before I converted to a Christian.
One day, one confronted me. I didn't respond as I knew in my heart that "Silent is the best answer for a fool". He followed me on my way home and wanted to fight me physically in a dark street. He went ahead and began to cursed me in my dialect abusive slangs but I kept quiet though the slangs are making me feel furious deep inside. But I controlled myself. So, he withdrew after many attempts. After few weeks, he began to act gently towards me but I knew that he was a green snake under green grass.
But I gave him no chance. Till date, he never talk to me or do me anything. He goes on his way and I on my way. CASE SETTLED.

4. Don't Be Afraid -Fear only gives room for devil to have his seat in your heart. So, be courageous.
