Even though I've had several reasons, very good reasons, to be offended lately, I'm just not that easy to offend. First off, the offense has to come from someone I hold in high regard. Anyone else? Their opinions of me just don't matter. The people I respect also know and respect me. Second, if someone I respect says something that tweaks me, I have to consider the intent. Were they yanking my chain? I have no reason to be offended. Were they serious? Well now, let's talk about it. You see, people I respect are good friends, and good friends can talk to each other when things like that happen. You can honestly say, "Hey, what the fuck?" and have a good convo to hash things out. If they can't be hashed out, then you make a choice, forgive or leave. But having ongoing shit throwing contests? Resorting to playground bully tactics? Whining about butthurt and doing sneaky underhanded shit that just isn't necessary but will brand you a weak-ass crybaby? I simply don't have time for that fuckery.
