” What is offended? Someone who is hurt, annoyed and disgusted. Your feelings become hurt by something, so you then become offended by anything that reminds you of that”.
” Like the movement of the #meto, this movements had great intentions at the beginning, but when someone in the movement is offended by anything having to do with sex, but then goes to a rap concert, that sings about Gang Rape? Then what really offends you”?
Seriously…………. We of this Society are so screwed up and become so easily offended by anything, time for us all to simply grow up, fix what we need to fix, so we all can move forward better and stronger along this journey of life. Just because something or someone has come across your path and disrupted your journey, doesn’t mean you should disrupt the journey of everybody else? We all have feelings, we all react differently to the same things, but we should never let these reactions, have an affect on all those around us.
We all have been hurt by something or someone throughout this journey of life, there is no one exempt from this. The problem then lies with each of us and what we do with this hurt? What is the proper way to end our pain? Do we bury it like nothing happened? Or do we take corrective action to be better and stronger moving forward? I think the latter is better, so we can fix what is needed to continue moving forward throughout the journey. True that if only we fix our own issues, than just maybe? Whatever that has come to you and reminded you of a past traumatic event, now that same event won’t effect others around you, as you now become offended of everything, instead of fixing one thing, which is a lot easier to fix one thing, than to multi task at many things all at once.
Now I don’t know about you, but almost all the time when all this stuff we are offended of comes to light is, right around one time of year and that is the Christmas season. This is suppose to be the most magical, the most loved, but yet we are so troubled during this time of year? You think it is time we all take stock in our lives, do sort of an inventory of ourselves, to not just clean out the old, but fix and repair ourselves, so we can move forward better, move forward without anymore hidden hurt, bringing us much pain. It is pretty sad that something from one generation, which was all good, now suddenly offends the new generation, which now has us all changing what was, to what is, so we can not offend who is around us.
Love…………………Love is the answer to all the questions, especially the questions of us being offended by whatever crosses our paths through this journey of life. When we love each other instead of hating on one another, then there is no talk of being offended by anything that may cross our paths, when we become hurt and feel real pain of anything, then through the love we take a step back, fix what we need to fix, so we then do not suppress anything deep within, which will most definitely rear it’s ugly head once again later on at some point of this journey. We all need to be more sincere of this word love, this is a special word with a special feeling deep within us all, it is not a word to be thrown around loosely, like it is a word without meaning. We throw this word around so much and at everything we see, that this word has totally lost the true meaning it once had.
You think these people that are talked about in this picture, are worried about being offended? Exactly right, these people were too busy working hard, to build themselves as well as their community, so they all can move forward better and stronger, throughout this journey called life. When you become to focused on offending someone, you are now stopped, you are no longer moving forward and life is passing you by. A big part of this offended era is, Social Media. Now there are many and I do mean many Social media platforms out there, each one will have you believe that they are the best one? But what they won’t tell you is, they are all the best ones for not only creating much drama in our lives, they are also responsible for making us offended by everything, other than the platform for who they are. Everything was so much simpler before the time of this Technology explosion, which brought us all the Social media platforms, We all worked hard walking our path, so this journey could be more of peace and happiness, for ourselves as well as those around us. When things went wrong back then, we took the time and responsibility to see where we went wrong, fixed what needed to be fixed, to move forward better, in today’s Society and within our social platforms, we have become so lazy, that it is easier to suppress, than to work at anything that is well worth the work.
” We need never suppress our true feelings, as they will always come back later and disrupt us even more the second time”
” Love is always the answer as hate will only compound any situation of this journey through life”
” Social media like everything else started out with the best of intentions, but we have turned these intentions into a negative and against everything good it once was”
