Ever met a germaphobe? Me either. I’ve heard of them though and I get what the term means. Pretty much scared shitless of germs.
I think in today’s world–at least today’s America (United States of America), being a germaphobe and being politically correct sure as hell do a lot of flirting.
People are to the point where they’re afraid to talk because they may offend someone. It’s sickening really. I think if someone says something and you feel offended by it, deep inside of your person you find truth in what they said.
It’s simple really: if you don’t like the way someone talks you shouldn’t worry about changing them; you should just focus on what you can control–you. Remove yourself from the situation.
I think today people are so caught up on “fixing” other people and changing how others are that it’s become an all out war. A free for all. Change everything that makes you upset or uncomfortable. Sometimes the best thing to do is change your surroundings by leaving.
To ask someone to change how they live to accommodate the way you live is a self defeating cause. You’re asking someone to accept your way of life and at the same time you’re not accepting theirs.
We don’t have to like each other to work together. We just have to have common goals. Let’s focus more on the goals and less on the bullshit. Let’s grow a little testicular fortitude and not be offended by everything. Seriously your being offended offends me.
Like how I did that? Pretty witty I know. I’m pretty awesome.
Positive vibes for positive minds.

So true, too many people don’t realize when someone speaks their mind, that is their opinion. What you do with what they say it is up to you.

We can always control our reaction to circumstance. Sometimes mean people or rude people don’t know any better. We have to lead by example if we really want to improve one another and bridge our points of view.
Thanks for the comment.
