#Idea – Stop Being Offended AKA Arguments Against Taking Things Personally

When you take offence, you have abdicated your power to choose how you feel to another person.
You have allowed them, consciously or not, to press your buttons.
And besides
Since your ‘person’ is, on one level, optional
(i.e a persona – a mask you wear and an idea you have created about yourself)
There’s no need to take anything ‘personally’
Unless you want to
But why would you want to?
