Taking Offence

Of course, if you label something as ‘offensive’ to you, you do realise that you are giving it power over you, don’t you, by – in effect – running away from it with your hands over your ears.

Whereas, if you ignore, dismiss or – best of all – treat it with derision then you retain power over it and limit the damage it can do to you.

But then, there are so many people out there who want you to always be a helpless victim, so that they can ride to your rescue.
