    All About Peace

    Though I get mad like anyone else, the main thrust of my attitude is of spreading peace and joy.  So it really bugs me when I accidentally offend someone.  I do my best to avoid deliberately causing offense, but I am human.Though I do mess up from time to time, I really am all...

    Have this thing to where some of the things I

    say tend to upset people. Not all on purpose of course but it does leave to awkward vibe in the air afterwards it happens most commonly when trying to help an individual.

    I'm not the one to intentionally offend someone.

    People today are just too d*mn sensitive. Its almost hard not to offend somebody with all of this "politically correct" bull crap.

    If you know me, you know I am very sensitive

    and even a few harsh words can cut deep to me. I hate being hurt, and I hate seeing others hurt. The only thing you can do to make me go off at you is being perverted, or a incorrect and offending assumption about my life, myself, or my family. Both of those just light some kind...

    I Constantly Worry About Offending My Friends

    Nothing to add to the title really. As you know I'm not very good with people. I won't be telling that Whitney Houston joke again, I know that much!

    I honestly try not to offend

    but I do and I probably will in the future as well. I'm often misunderstood or I say things without thinking, innocently, with no foul intentions for harm but it happens. Believe when I say, I wish I hadn't. Realizing that I may have hurt or offended someone hurts me way more...

    There is a fine line between educating

    and offending. Facts can be taught to children, sometimes to adults. Opinions can be shared but not taught, without offending. When I'm driving and someone is flipping me off or yelling, I'm not offended, my driving is offensive but I don't notice I'm doing it till it's over...

    I Hate It!

    I am trying to bring people together, not drive anyone apart or away from me. I know sometimes I can get a bit emotional and even swear too much, so let me apologize now and assure you I will work on making my stories reader friendly for everyone.

    I try to be nice, yet my opinions seem to bother

    so many people. Oh well, **** happens. Lesson here is: If they don't accept that you have a different view, they weren't worth your time I guess.

    I Try Too Hard Sometimes

    I guess i'm just the type of person who wants everyone to get along. I know it's not possible for that to happen but I find myself trying to keep everyone happy. I think sometimes I just wish I didn't care.
