Offended

People get offended way too easily.

(Warning: language: pg-ish?)

I don’t understand the point of getting offended.

That’s not to say I never get my feelings hurt.  But I try to let go of it as quickly as possible.

Being offended is a choice.

You choose whether to be offended.  Whether to hold a grudge or let it go.

Holding a grudge only hurts you.

Let it go.

And don’t start singing that stupid song from Frozen.  I hate that song, and I’m offended.  😉

I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings

I need to tell my story.  Or at least my side of the story.

I’m a terrible speaker.  I forget most of what I want to say.

I’m an introvert.  Writing comes more naturally to me.  I can put down what I remember.  I can add more later.  Then I can make it make sense after that.

I’m not trying to accuse anyone of anything.

I’m not trying to “out” anyone.

I don’t want to embarrass anyone.

I don’t want revenge.

I need to be understood.  So I’m telling my story.

I avoid naming names.  I don’t want to embarrass anyone.  I leave out details to avoid that.

Some people’s feelings get hurt anyway.  I’m sorry about that.

I’ve made a lot of bad choices in my life.  I guess my blog’s no different.

I hope I don’t alienate anyone.
