I Don't Mean to Offend Anyone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 791 People

    It is never my attention to offend anyone.

    If I post a silly question it is not aimed at anyone in particular. I am a grown-up, if I have something I feel I need to say to you, I will do so in a no nonsense way and in private. If you have a question about something I posted you can ask, just be respectful about it and I...

    I'm pretty sensitive

    so I try the very best to consider others' views even when I could not share it. I try to have compassion and avoid words that can hurt the person so I'm more inclined to find common points than stressing in the ones I disagree to avoid a confrontation. I have been called...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I watched a movie that had an actress probably

    about my age. She was homely, frumpy and generally physically unappealing, but a sweet person. It made me wonder what it would be like to look like that. I've always been attractive. And I admit it's important to me to look good. But what if I'd been born into a body that simply...

    I never mean to offend others,

    but I usually find out a way to anyways. I am usually very cautious with what I say and I always keep my opinions to myself, I try avoiding conflict and not to be rude. But I always find a way to say something wrong or bring up a bad topic or seem not interested. I always seem...

    I don't really care if I offend someone.

    How can someone be so weak that mere words hurt them.

    My own personal opinion.

    Feel free to disagree.On being offensive.If you open a sentence with*this may sound offensive, but*,it is a very good time to just shut your mouth.Whenever anybody starts anything with those words, you know that offending someone is the primary goal.Saying *don't take this the...

    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...

    If we ever chat or interact in any way here on

    EP or anywhere else, know that I don't mean to offend you or disrespect you in any way shape or form. I personally don't think that I get offended easily, so you don't have to worry about offending me. Also, know that I'm sure I can get annoying by my seemingly pointless...

    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...

    Just my personal opinion.

    It's not written in stone. I have found that it is far too easy to offend some of the people on EP. I never intend to offend, but I'm often accused of being offensive. Perhaps some people are overly sensitive, but I have my own theory. I think, depending on what kind of...

    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.

    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...
