So many people are offended by things these days, and I just wanted to write about why they are offended. Because they don't really place the "blame" on the right person in most cases.
Usually people will blame someone else for saying something offensive, when in reality, it's not offensive. They just offended themselves based on their beliefs about what was said.
Intro to the article:
"There is a commonly held belief that other people can offend you. In this article I’m going to discuss why that is not the case, which might anger you or relieve you.
If you want there to be a scapegoat for why you get mad, rather than to take personal responsibility for getting upset, then you won’t like the idea that no one can offend you.
If, however, you want to live a life in which you never get offended, because you would be happier, then you would be relieved to hear that this is possible...."
