Why do people get offended so easily?

The smallest things offend some people... Such as the lady who doesn't like or agree with valentines. That particular holiday has nothing to do with religion or beliefs (which I find alot of people touchy about) it's simply about showing "LOVE". How can that offend you?

  • Sometimes people get so involved in themselves (ME syndrome) that if it is not about them, what they want or like then they get very defensive. Sounds crazy but we do live in a crazy world!

  • Agreeing or not agreeing with something does not equate being offended. But I do agree that people get offended way too easily.

  • It is so sad that people get offended over holidays, even hearts at Valentine's? WOw, talk about being sensitive! It's ironic when people come to this country for their freedom of opportunity and then will be the ones complaining about the Christmas tree, and how it should be Happy Holiday not Christmas.

  • I guess for some people it's easier to get offended rather than accept or tolerate.

  • Unfortunately, many people read things into the most uncomplicated events or celebrations and turn it into something ugly or wrong in their eyes. These people have either no love in their lives or are not accepting the love.
