18. Be as offended as you want to be.

 

As I said, very few people get the point of what I'm saying. Who cares who's wrong? Right, wrong, neither of the above. What difference does it make? What good does it do me to be right if I feel like shit?

Does being offended feel good? Then go for it. Personally, it doesn't feel good when I do it. It discolors my life. It raises my blood pressure. It makes me unhappy.

And you know what? The person who offended me doesn't care. In fact, he probably enjoys it. that's why he said the things he said the way he said them. To ruin my day.

I usually decide I'm not going to let him and I have some tools, meditation and some spiritual strengths, that work inside me to make sure that what someone else says or does does not create turmoil inside me.

My choice. You have the same choice.
