Being offended: What does it REALLY mean?
Inspired by a comment on another post that I read recently:
I get a chuckle out of it almost every time I see someone trumpeting about how something is offensive to them and they get triggered by it.
"That person offended me."
"That movie/song/book is offensive."
"That person's clothes (or lack thereof) are offensive."
My perspective is that if you are offended, then you lack the strength of character to prevent another person from controlling your emotions for you.
If something offends you, look the other way. We are in control of the way we point our eyes and ears, so DO something other than bitching about it. Walk away. Do something or surround yourself with things that don't offend you. If you're offended, take control of your life and emotions and focus on YOUR life instead of what you don't like about others, and watch how quickly things improve.
