    My Intent Is Never to Offend Or Hurt Someone

    BUT sometimes it happens.  I think it is because I am very blunt and honest.  Alot of people ask for the truth in life, but when it is given to them, they get angry and shoot the messenger, so to speak.  I don't mean to offend someone, but if I disagree then I will...

    Sometimes

    Well,actually I mean to offend the people I don't like. See my story in the group,"I Don't Pretend To Like People I Don't".That should just about explain it.

    That Was Not The Question

    On a recent Q and A debate, there was a question relating to food. I was shocked to see how many people responded to this like it was a sex site, saying things like "sex", "boobs", "hour in bed", and the like. People - do you read these questions before responding? if it doesn...

    Troubled In A Politically Correct Society

    As my beliefs are all their own and I do not push my race, religion or sexual preferences on to anyone ever, I believe to each their own, and you have free will, just as I do you going to do what you want, just like I do and many will be all opened up about theirs. I do often in...

    Arrogant

    People only see me as two: If they don't describe me as a serious person, then it have to be 'totally arrogant'. I've never ever in my life intend to offend anyone. It's just the way I behave. I'm a serious person. I talk only when it's necessary. I say what I have to say. But if...

    I Find This Very Irritating

    When I answer a question, I certainly may not agree with the values, morals, or the very nature of the question.  I may criticize or answer in a way that some people do not like.  I am not talking about the asker, they are not the problem.  On a couple of occasions...

    No Offense

    The last thing I want to do is offend anyone.  I may say things and you may think (general speaking), I'm meaning it in a bad way and in fact, I'm not.

    Not Intentionally

    I will not censor my beliefs or opinions, but I will not be disrespectful about expressing them. I don't name-call or use personal attacks, I just state my opinion. If you disagree, I am fine with that. We can't all feel the same way about every issue. If I offend you, it is...

    I'M Not Perfect

    No human being is. Not since Original SIn - or even before that. I try to treat everyone the way I would like to be treated - especially if I had ever been or can imagine ever being - in such a situation. I like to try to help everyone if it' s within reason. "No" is a hurting...

    I never deliberately set out to give offense.  Some may argue that my writing is offensive to them.  Well, I apologise  - I didn't have them in mind when I wrote the piece - but no-one forced them to read it.  I don't like confrontation and will seek to avoid...

    My Sense Of Humor

    I have a very odd sense of humor. I don't mean to offend anyone in any way, it's just how I joke around. Please feel free to laugh it off. I mean well!! Just thought Id throw it out there.

    All the time it seems. People just don't understand my sense of humor and it really doesn't bother me. If I offend you then perhaps you just need to relocate.

    I Really Don't Want To...

    And I make a large effort not to offend anyone, but regrettably, I'm a member of the species that does a fairly good job of irritating their peers, so sometimes I do or say things that others perceive as offensive. If anything I say or do offends anyone here, please, don't...

    Really!

    I think I offend people quite often. I've never really thought about. I don't talk to people very often so I don't think that helps. Although sometimes I just don't care if I offend someone or not. Most of the time I try not to though. But I think that's part of my problem. I...
